It was named for Ollantay, the Inca general who expanded the frontiers of Tawantinsuyo as far noth as Colombia and as far south as argentina during the reign of the Inca Pachacutec. The general asked for the hand of the emperor's daughter, a request Pachacutec refused. He accomplished though Ollantay and he was still a commoner. The general rebelled against the ruler and was imprisoned. Ollantay's love may have met a bad end. But yours will not when you glimpse the stone streets and houses, mountain scenery some of the most lush territory in the Valley, and great ruins.
