It will be the turn to get to know the town of Moray, highlighted mainly by the existence of 3 "coliseums", circular platforms or terrace systems that the Incas used for their crops, activating in the same geographical space, different microclimates for agricultural production, generating different temperatures between the depressions of the terraces, built according to the orientation of the sun and wind.
