    The Pisac town from the Inca times was a place where about 700 people used to stay. The town was split into 4 parts. The entrance part was a section for the sentries to guard the entry level and exit to the town.
    The 2nd section was a place of many concentric rings in terraces, much like at Moray. Similar to Moray, this place was for experimentation with crops.
