Located in the present-day Peruvian region of Cusco. In colonial documents it is referred to as the “Valley of Yucay.” The valley was formed by the Urubamba river, also known as Vilcanota River or Willkamayu. The latter, in Quechua that means the sacred river. It is fed by numerous rivers which descend through adjoining valleys and gorges, and contains numerous archaeological remains and villages. The valley was appreciated by the Incas due to its special geographical and climatic qualities. It was one of the empire’s main points for the extraction of natural wealth, and one of the most important areas for corn production in Peru northwards from Pisac.

The area is perhaps best known for the ruins, known as Inca Písac, which lie on a top of a hill at the entrance to the valley. The ruins are separated along the ridge into four groups: P’isaqa Qalla Q’asa, Inti watana and Kinchiraqay.
