The towns of the Sacred Valley seem to be frozen in time. Many customs are kept alive thanks to the efforts of the villagers themselves. In Pisac, there is a handicraft market that has its origins in the important commercial transactions during the Viceroyalty. In Chinchero, there are many textile centers that preserve the type of spinning inherited through many generations. In the Sunday market of this traditional town you can still barter or trade. The villagers still dress in their daily life with the typical costume of the locality.
