The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a valley in the Andes of Peru, close to the Inca capital of Cusco. The Valley is generally understood to include everything between Písac and Ollantaytambo, parallel to the Urubamba River, or Vilcanota River or Wilcamayu, as this Sacred river is called when passing through the valley.
It is fed by numerous rivers which descend through adjoining valleys and gorges, and contains numerous archaeological remains and villages. The Sacred Valley was appreciated by the Incas due to its special geographical and climatic qualities.
It was one of the empire’s main points for the extraction of natural wealth, and the best place for maize production in Peru.
