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.
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.
You will be rewarded with tremendous views over the sacred valley, over the mountains, over the terraces. Get out of the bus and capture the moment!
The market is open on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. We went there on a Thursday and it was in full swing.
Along the way to Pisac, there are several lookouts which you'll get very good views of the Rio Urubamba and the Sacred Valley.

I particularily enjoyed the market of Pisac: just walking around, and assisting to Sunday mass in Quechua.
