MORAY

Possibly in the time of the Incas it has been an agricultural investigation, where experiments of cultures are carried out at different heights, each terrace produces different microclimates, where the temperature changes from a higher place and is reduced towards the outside at lower temperatures. This place has almost 20 different microclimates, it is believed that Moray could have served as a model for the calculation of agricultural production not only of the Urubamba Valley but also of different parts of the Tahuantinsuyo.

MARAS (SALINERAS)

There are 3000 small wells with an approximate area of ​​about 5 m² each. In times of drought these are filled with salt water that they found from a natural spring that is located above the wells. When the water evaporates, the salt crystallizes. When the salt reaches about 10 cm high from the floor, it is removed and then bagged in cloth sacks to be sent to the region’s markets; Today that salt is being iodized by state standards. This salt, in addition to sodium chloride, has other minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and copper.
