 MACHU PICCHU – PERU

Machu Picchu is Quechua word that means “Old Peak or Old Mountain”; it´s located in the Cusco region at 112 km at northeast of the city of Cusco; at 2,400 masl; Machu Picchu is a pre-Columbian XV century Inca site. Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was built as an estate for the Inca Emperor Pachacutec (1438–1472).

The Incas started building the Machu Picchu around 1400, but abandoned it as an official site for the Inca rulers a century later at the time of the Spanish Conquest. Although known locally, it was unknown to the outside world before being brought to international attention in 1911 by the American historian Hiram Bingham. Since then, Machu Picchu has become an important tourist attraction.
