The views were spectacular and I didn't even realize that lunch would be included. All our Spanish skills wouldn't have been very helpful in this high-stress situation.

Today there are about 3,000 pools that are still harvested by the community of local families who control the salt pans, the transport roads to the valley, and generally the entire salt production from the site, which remains much the same as as it was when the Inca discovered it over 1,000 years ago. The Moray Inca site is thought they were used to determine the optimal conditions for growing crops.
