Pisac is a small town about 35 km from Cuzco. Pisac is most of all famous for its Sunday market, but also for some ruins dating from about the same time as Machu Picchu. Pisac lives at a very different pace than nearby Cuzco. There is something very harmonious about the whole place, a harmony that evades explanation.

About Pisac

Activities

  • Although very small, it is worth putting several hours to a whole Sunday aside for the Pisac market. People are coming down from the highlands with their products, including some very fresh food, raw materials, tomatoes, rice, potatoes. It is worth sitting down with the locals for a lunch eating just that, along with trout clearly just pulled from the river. It costs about 5 soles, but is a meal to remember.
  • The Virgin del Carmen festival is in July, and includes colorful costumed dancers and a parade. There are few foreign tourists, and it's definitely worth a day trip via bus from Cusco if you like a little culture and history. As usual, beware of skilled pick-pockets.

Food

  • Blue Llama Café.
  • Sit down with the locals and try some of the typical food of the region at one of the food stands at the market.
  • Ulrike's Cafe. Ulrike's Cafe is very good. It has great vegetarian options, good value, filling meals, local experiences such as Chicha Morada, and delicious deserts such as Kahlua cheesecake. The three plate meal with soup (pumpkin soup is especially tasty), entree (try the veg. lasagna), and cheesecake is 17 soles, or with a brownie and ice cream for 14. Meals can be obtained for 10 soles or less depending upon the quantity desired. You can also inquire about local lodging here. 7-17 Soles.

Drinks

Pisac does not abound in nightlife options. Currently the only place to get a drink is Sapo's Lounge on Calle Espinar. They also do the best pizza in town.

Shopping

  • There are bazaars along the streets of Pisac, if you want to buy local handcrafts, it is worth checking them out here.

Silver jewelry combined with gemstone work is common here. Alpaca goods, musical instruments, rugs, and knick-knackery of all kinds can be bought at this market.
