Inca Písac (Pisac ruins)
Inca Písac (Pisac ruins) Reviews
Call it Machu Pichu's younger and less privileged brother, but it's still worth a visit! Nov 24, 2013
The best way to see this place is by purchasing a buleto turistico which grants you access to about 8 sites in Cusco, the four sites around Saksaywaman and works out to be the most economical.
Getting to this place isn't always the easiest - there are very few options of public transport so the best option is either go with a tour company from Cusco, or just do what I did - hire a private taxi!
The walk around the ruins will take you around 2 hours or so. But again, it depends on deep you go. We didn't want to ruin the upcoming Machu Pichu hike too much by spending too much time here and tiring of ruins by the time we did the 4 day hike. Plus, what also was a damper (literally) was that it rained, and we'd come in flip flops so walking in that mud was a challenge. Besides which, if you're not on a hike "discovering" things, a lot of the ruins kind of get same old same old after a while.
But, I still say this is amazing - this was the first time I got up close with Inca terracing, and to visualise what the citadel, the urban areas, the Temple of the Sun God, etc. were like was just fascinating.
Overall rating would be a 7/10.
There is quite a lot of factual information given in this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%ADsac.
