Moray is home to the most photographed circular farming terraces. They resemble the Roman amphitheatre. The farming terraces of Moray are a testament to the advancement to the Incas farming techniques.
This was more of an agricultural laboratory to Incas. As the terraces bear different temperatures at each level, it helped Incas to determine the best weather condition required to grow crops. This is the reason why the country now produces over 800 varieties of potatoes.
