Faces of the Sacred Valley in Photos | Peru

The region of the Sacred Valley is truly amazing. There are so many things to do and see, but besides the wonderful vistas and landscapes, this is a place with incredibly warm and welcoming people, diverse and rich in cultural traditions.

Over the few days I spent wandering the area I not only photographed the beauty of the citadels and landscape but also the Sacred Valley’s people. Here are some of my favorite portraits.
