Pisac is an archaeological complex that is in the homonymous district of the province of Calca, located 30 kilometers from the city of Cusco.

The archaeological site is one of the most important and visited in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, which is located in the east of the Vilcabamba mountain range and in which it can be seen how the Inca agronomists solved the problem of sowing on the slopes of the hills.

Pisac is divided into two areas: the old one, located in the upper part, which is an Inca archaeological site, and the current one, located in the valley, dating from the colonial era.

It is a tourist attraction due to the Inca archaeological site, which is part, together with Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu, of the archaeological circuit of Cuzco, making it one of the largest sources of income for the town, apart from subsistence agriculture.
