Moray's Terraces: Moray is a formidable archeological complex, once
was conformed for andenerías's admirable systems, of enormous terraces
that overlap concentrically, taking a gigantic amphitheater's form.
These beautiful terraces conformed a great agricultural laboratory, in
the they experimented than the antique Peruvian and they obtained
improvements. They got for themselves incredible advances in the
agriculture, her as he constituted his principal labor activity and his
economic development's base.
Moray's enormous circular terraces locate 53 Km . of the
Cusco for the
road that drives to the Urubamba's valley themselves.
Moray's Complex Arqueológico: His Inca constructions's brilliant and
dared conception did not have limits in order to the antique Peruvian.
Lengthwise and I widen worldly, the men generally made constructions
starting from the ground up. They worked downwards In Moray, withdrawing
extraordinary rock quantities and stones, and using thousands of
workpeople during several generations to give form to several platforms
groups, in circular form approximately perfect.
He is possible than the word Moray have than seeing with the term amoray
that one was naming with to the corn harvest; Or with moraya or moray,
than era potato's name dehydrated.
The journalist and woman writer, Alfonsina Barrionuevo, define to the
following manner's this monument: " Moray's hanging gardens constructed
in a gigantic hole earthen find To some Maras's 7 km.. They lower A
circular- platforms series to a 150- meters depth. There the Incas
raised corn, quinoa, panti, kantu's flowers and another plants in the
process of experiment in order to recreation of his Messrs.. A canals
system where today the rain deposits he was securing the irrigable of
the great amphitheater's hanging terraces. Moray was without a doubt an
artificial well-covered paradise of plants and flowers, something like a
greenhouse in the land's same inside".
The piece of land's natural depressions, which should have made good use
of wall fronts they molded according to a masterful architectonic plan.
The construction of all an aqueducts net was included In this plan and
drain (subj), in order to the irrigation and the escape of water them
down the fluvial rainfalls's product. His perfection attended such than
it works impeccably to today.

The experts correspond whereon Moray was a structures complex in order
to agricultural use. At present potatoes, broad beans, wheat, barley
cultivate mareña themselves in the plain and the corn, because the cold

in something the earthly prop the corn's cultivation.
John Earls, intellectual North American the Andean- past scholar, he
measured the temperature of these terraces in the bigger set's several
levels. result found several microclimates's existence, it was found
that the inferior level registered higher temperature, continuous for
the natural pampa out of her andenería and finally, the last stands
registered bottom temperature.
It is possible than the place's antique residents, for some reason, they
should have required of principal corn quantity and perhaps it had been
the cause in order that they forge this lavish archeological complex.
