Inca agriculture? The terraces of Moray
a fascinating place in a spectacular setting
The Incas were well known for their effective government,
the impressive architecture and, especially, their agricultural skills.
These terraces are concentric circles. The theory most often heard is that they were used as a sort of agricultural laboratory by the Incas, but there also are other explanations like a religious use.
The place definitely has mystical quality, especially
late in the afternoon, when shadows begin to fill the amphitheatre-like
Apart from the peculiar terraces, the only major sight here is the beautiful landscape: the earth has a special ocre tone here and the Andes provide a spectacular backdrop for the fields.
