Overview

Enjoy a fantastic 6 hour guided tour to the arqueological site of Moray and the salt mines of Maras. Moray was considered as an Inca agricultural laboratory consisting of several terraced circular depressions. The salt mines has been extracted since Inca times, and emerged by evaporating salty water from a local subterranean stream. The highly salty water emerges at a spring, a natural outlet of the underground stream.
