Pisac is a picturesque Andean Village, typical except for the huge, spreading pisonary tree that dominates the central square. Most people visit Pisac to see the market on Sunday, and despite its popularity, the market retains much of its local charm; villagers from miles around gather to barter and sell their produce.

In the tourist section of the market, a wide variety of handicrafts can be purchased, such as the local ceramics including a huge and varied collection of hand-painted multi-coloured beads. There are smaller markets in Pisac on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
