    A mass in Quechua

    by vanessadb Updated Dec 4, 2002

    If you visit Pisac on a Sunday, you'll also be able to attend a mass in Quechua, the native Indian language. Although all the younger people do talk Spanish, lots of the older Peruvians who live in the mountains surrounding Cuzco do not speak much Spanish, if any, their native language being Quechua.
    The church is small, and on Sunday all the locals from the surrounding villages come to Pisac to attend mass.

    Pisac Ruinas

    by darthmilmo Written Feb 25, 2003

    Pisac is a lovely town about 1 hour away from Cusco. The town is close to the ruins of Pisac. I was really surprices when they turned out to be impressive with several military and civilian buildings. I took a collectivo from town uphill to the side and slowly made my way down back to town. The scenery was breathtaking in and on itself. In addition, I got to see Inca terraces all over the place.

    Pisac Market

    by darthmilmo Written Feb 25, 2003

    Pisac is a lovely town about 1 hour away from Cusco. Try going there during a market day so you can get to buy tons of bargains. Although this market is a bit touristy, it's still worthwhile. The food on the market is delicious!

    This little church was found behind the craft market. Just a nice find trying to get away from the sales people.

    Check out the llamas and alpacas

    Right before entering Pisac, there is a llama and alpacas farm. If you are lucky, your bus driver will stop for you to take a look and your guide will explain the differences between the species.
