It is a must-see for any traveller who goes on tours to Cusco and Peru, for its temperate climate, its excellent farmland, the river Vilcanota or also known as the Urubamba river that runs along the sacred valley of Cusco for about 100kms, its different ecological floors that offer different climates and its fertile lands that produce the best corn with which the best chicha de jora (Frutillada) is prepared, a typical drink of the Urubamba Valley and typical fruits of the zone such as peach, capulí, avocado, etc. Because of these characteristics, the Sacred Valley was a resting place of the Inca period.
