Moray, just outside the town of Moras, is a fabulous but lesser visited Inca Site. Circular terracing, which at first glance looks like a huge amphitheatre, forms a giant bowl. There are actually two such bowls at Moray, one of which is much larger and more restored than the other.Stone stairs built into the terrace walls allow visitors to walk down to the very bottom level.
Opening hours: 7:30am-3:30pm
Salinas is just a short distance from Moray, making the two sites easy to visit in one day.Salinas are salt mines which have been in use since the time of the Incas. 5,740 small pools (pocitos) line the mountainside, each of which can yield 150 kilos of salt per month. The pools are fed by a salt water hot spring which has been diverted into the salt pans. As the water evaporates the salt crystallizes and is harvested.Visitors can reach Salinas by either hiking up to it or approaching it by car from the top. The road in from the top is a narrow dirt road which winds its way down the mountain side. There are a few areas to stop along the way with great views out over the thousands of salt pools, giving some perspective on how huge this site is.
