The Salt Mines of Maras



In the province of Urubamba in Peru, a mountain is cut into thousands of white terraces from top to bottom. The landscape’s color changes according to the brightness at each time of day, making amazing textures and tones.

They are the centuries-old salt mines of Maras, located on a Qaqawiñay mountainside in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
