The Moray terraces are one of the most #spectacular ruins of the Incas. This archaeological #site in Peru consists of several terraced circular depressions with a sophisticated irrigation system, which makes it equally spectacular and unusual.

Although the purpose of these depressions is not really known, some believe that this site was used as an agricultural experiment station. Another interesting fact about these terraces is that the temperature difference between top and bottom is 15 degrees Celsius.
