MACHU PICCHU THE LOST CITY OF THE INCAS

Machu Picchu means old peak; it is a pre-Colombian XV century Inca site located at 2,400 m (8,000 ft). It’s located in the south of Peru at 112 km northwest of the city of Cusco; most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was built as an estate for the Inca Emperor Pachacutec (1438–1472). Often referred to as the “City of the Incas”, it is perhaps the most familiar icon of the Inca society.

The Machu Picchu was built in the classical Inca style, with polished dry-stone walls. Its three primary structures are the Intihuatana (Hitching Post of the Sun), the Temple of the Sun, and the Room of the Three Windows. These are located in what is known by archaeologists as the Sacred District of Machu Picchu.

Nowadays it is a Historic National Sanctuary, protected by the Peruvian Government by means of Law Nº 001.81.AA of 1981, that tries to conserve the geological formations and archaeological remains inside the Sanctuary, besides protecting its flora, fauna and landscape’s beauty. The whole park has an extension of 32,592 has; that is 80,535 acres.
