The Sacred Valley of the Incas or Urubamba Valley is a valley in the Andes of Peru, close to the Inca capital of Cusco and below the ancient sacred city of Machu Picchu. In colonial documents it is referred to as the Valley of Yucay, according to recent researches it encompasses the heartland of the Inca Empire (Bauer, Covey 2002). The valley is generally understood to include everything between Calca and Lamay, P sac and Ollantaytambo, it has been formed by the Urubamba River, also known as Vilcanota River or Wilcamayu.

The latter means in Quechua, the still spoken lingua franca of the Inca Empire the Sacred river. It is fed by numerous rivers which descend through adjoining valleys and gorges, and contains numerous archaeological remains and villages. The valley was appreciated by the Incas due to its special geographical and climatic qualities. It was one of the empires main points for the extraction of natural wealth, and one of the most important areas for maize production in Peru northwards from Pisac.

The early Incas may have come from Wimpillay as their mummies had been discovered there (Covey 2003). Large scale maize production started around 1400 as Inca urban agriculture (Protzen 1993) based on varieties bred in Moray, either a governmental crop lab (Earls 1989) or a seedling nursery of the Incas (Plachetka, Pietsch 2009).
