Moray is to 3,500 msnm, it is located to 74 km of the city of Cusco. It is famous for the sunken amphitheater, formed by four circular platforms that seem to disappear inside the puna, by way of an artificial crater. Apparently, the place constituted a center of investigation agricultural Inca dedicated to the experimentation of cultivations around the different ones you even altitudinales of its parcels (some to more than 100 m of depth). The andenerías, built on contention walls stuffed with fertile earth and watered by means of complex irrigation systems, they allowed to cultivate more than 250 vegetable species.

Taken of WIKIPEDIA.

The disposition of its platforms produces a gradient of microclimates having the center of the circular concentric platforms a higher temperature and decreasing gradually toward the exterior to lower temperatures, being able to this way to simulate up to 20 different types of microclimates. It is believed that Moray could not have been good as model for the calculation of the agricultural production alone of the Valley of Urubamba but also of different parts of Tahuantinsuyo.

The circular enormous platforms of Moray are located to 53 Km. of Cusco for the highway that leads to the valley of Urubamba. Moray is to 7 kilometers of Maras, in the Sacred Valley of the Inca.
