Then, we will continue to the picturesque town of Pisac where you can purchase beautifully crafted products hand-made by local artisans. On Sunday, the main attraction is a mass celebrated in Quechua and traditional music played with traditional musical instruments. Afterwards, a typical Peruvian lunch will be served at a local restaurant before visiting the fortress of Ollantaytambo and its main attraction, the Temple of the Sun. Built using massive stones, each one approximately 12 feet (3.5m) tall, this temple was used as a fortress during the time of the Inca civil war.
