Travel Guide

Machupicchu

This ancient Inca city is one of Peru’s most precious treasures. It was built in the mid-fifteenth century and is believed to have been one of the residences of the ninth Inca of Tahuantinsuyo, Pachacutec, although it also contains the remains of a sanctuary. Its name means old mountain, and alludes to the place where it is located, about 2453 meters high, on a rocky promontory between the hills of Huchuy Picchu and Huayna Picchu.

Today, this Inca jewel is one of the country’s tourist attractions. Travelers come to Aguas Calientes to start the Inca route that Hiram Bingham, the Yale professor, popularized in the early twentieth century. The historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu is considered one of the seven new wonders of the modern world and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1983.
