Trip Planner: South America / Peru / Cusco Region / Sacred Valley / Ollantaytambo / Sitio arqueológico Pinkuylluna
Visit Sitio arqueológico Pinkuylluna to see the remains of a hillside fortress that guarded the entrance to the Sacred Valley. The ruins stand on the site of one of the rare battles that the Spaniards lost to the Incas. Climb a steep slope to get to the massive terraces, which will reward you with panoramic views across the valley to a quarry where the Incas excavated stones. Take a taxi if you wish to avoid the four-hour round-trip trek. Hire a local guide to get a better understanding of the ingenuity of Inca civilization. Wear sturdy footwear and a windproof jacket.

Totally free, very peaceful hike. Few people. I'm pretty fit but it was pretty challenging as I am still adjusting to the altitude. Great view of the ruins across the town.
