Pisac is a Peruvian village in the Sacred Valley. It is best known for its Incan ruins and large market held every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. The market sells typical Andean crafts and is a colourful place, it attract heavy tourist traffic from nearby Cusco.
The Peruvian Hairless Dog is an ancient breed. Although it is often perceived to be an Incan dog because it is known to have been kept during the Inca Empire, they were also kept as pets in pre-Inca cultures from the Peruvian coastal zone.
