Its waters provide communities and cultivated fields around the area; and reflect the hills and mountains surrounding it.

We continue our journey and visit the Salineras de Maras, thousands of individual ancient salt mines that

Form unique terraces in a hillside. The mines, small pools thickly coated with crystallized salt like dirty snow,

have existed in the same spot since Inca days and are still operable.

Among the wilder and more enigmatic Inca sites in Peru are the concentric ring terraces found in Moray.

Unique in the Inca oeuvre, the site is not the ruins of a palace or fortress or typical temple,

but what almost appears to be a large-scale environmental art installation.
