The best Peru has got to offer
When first discovered, archeologists thought that the ruins of Maras Moray served the purpose of theater. Understandably, the round multi-leveled structures look a lot like amphitheaters indeed. After some more research, the ruins were thought to be a zone of experimental farming. An ancient laboratory in the middle of the Sacred Valley. The way it is built and shaped, the levels and its position towards the sun and wind are very specific. This gives each level of the terraces has its own microclimate. Moreover, despite being built in a zone prone to flood, the terraces don´t. To top all that, it was also discovered that the soil comes from different Peruvian regions.
