The Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu is located in the region of Cusco at an altitud of 2,400masl

MACHU PICCHU THE INCA CITADEL

Since 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 which 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.

Historians believe Machu Picchu was built at the height of the Inca Empire, which dominated western South America in the 15th and 16th centuries. It was abandoned an estimated 100 years after its construction, probably around the time the Spanish began their conquest of the mighty pre-Columbian civilization in the 1530s. There is no evidence that the conquistadors ever attacked or even reached the mountaintop citadel, however; for this reason, some have suggested that the residents’ desertion occurred because of a smallpox epidemic.
