The colourful market town of Pisac

The colourful market town of Pisac

Every day’s a market day in Pisac. The town’s magnificent Incan ruins merit exploration, but it’s the vibrant narrow streets, garlanded with multicoloured textiles and traditional handicrafts, bursting with busy traders, that make Pisac a highlight on any Peruvian itinerary. After an Alpaca poncho? Look no further. Hankering for iconic Andean textiles? Step this way. Musical instruments, traditional jewellery, scarves and hats – the market is second to none whether you’re after atmospheric photos, stocking up on souvenirs or just want to get a feel for one of the country’s liveliest towns. Grab one of the tasty empanadas for sale, take a look around and enjoy.
