Ollantaytambo —located in Cusco’s Urubamba province— has been selected as one of the ‘Best Tourism Villages’ 2021 by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) during a ceremony held in the Spanish city of Madrid.
With this recognition, Ollantaytambo stood out as the only district that represented Peru among a total of 44 villages from 32 countries.
Every village was selected after a tough competition in which innovative approaches and contributions to tourism were taken into consideration.
According to the municipal authority, Ollantaytambo is now one of the best examples of villages embracing tourism to provide opportunities and drive sustainable development.
Ollantaytambo is an architectural gem that is on the way to Machu Picchu —one of the New Seven Wonders of the World as well as a Cultural and Natural Heritage of Humanity.
