Maras

Located at 3300 masl to the west of Cusco in the district of Maras, in the province of Urubamba. Its main attraction are the salt mines, consisting of 3000 wells with an area of 5m2 each. In times of drought these wells are filled with salt water from a natural spring and when the water evaporates the salt crystallizes.

Maras, was the most important supplier of salt at the time of the viceroyalty, reflected in its buildings such as the church and houses that preserve the shields of the Inca nobility.

Moray, famous for its circular system of terraces, in the form of concentric rings where each circle comprises a terrace that overlaps another, was possibly an agricultural laboratory where experiments were carried out at different heights, gradually generating a different microclimate on each walk.
