On the banks of Urubamba River, surrounded by the breathtaking Peruvian Andes lays Sacred Valley of the Incas (Valle Sagrado de los Incas), an important agricultural, spiritual, and political center of the Incas, that now encompasses some of the most important South American archeological sites. Being the starting point for many famous trekking routes, it stretches about 100 km between Cusco, the former capital of the Inca Empire and Machu Picchu Citadel.
