From 8.00 am. We will pick up you from your hotel to drive to the town of Maras and its salt mines that have more than 3000 wells, which are worked to date. Each of the wells has a dimension of 5 square meters. The 3,000 pools are fed by an underground hypersaline spring that originated 110 million years ago during the formation of the Andes Mountains. Currently, these natural salt pools attract hundreds of tourists. The view you get from this landscape is beautiful. The inhabitants of Maras sold this salt, just as the Incas did hundreds of years ago.

Then we will visit Moray; Agricultural Research Center. The are 4 terraces in Moray, these have a circular shape, that allowed to take advantage of the microclimate that is generated in the depressions protected from the winds. Moray is made up of 4 slightly elliptical galleries, which the inhabitants call “muyus”. The largest gallery has a depth of 45 m and the average height of each platform is 1.80 m. For researchers, Moray’s circular platforms functioned as an agricultural research center, where each level offered a different climate environment allowing different plants to be grown experimentally. The platforms were built on retaining walls filled with fertile land. He watered them through complex irrigation systems. At the bottom of the platforms, there is a system that stores the water coming from the rains. Following this practice, more than 250 plant species were cultivated.
