The sacred Valley is located about 10 miles from Cusco as the crow flies, but 1 800 feet below. Its pleasant climate and its fertile soil made the Urubamba Valley a choice granary for the Empire. It was also a strategic site because it guarded the entrance of the jungle. But above all, it was of course a high religious place. The place emanates a singular energy, a strange mix of sweet and relaxed lifestyle and a startling relief, stuck between a grandiose and impressive past, and a harsh present, rural and colored.
