A gem buried deep in the mountains

Its imposing architecture is made up of around 140 structures.

Machu Picchu in Quechua, "Old Mountain", is the contemporary name given to an old Andean-Inca town located in the Eastern mountains of southern Peru at 2430 meters above sea level.It is located in the Cusco Region, Province of Urubamba, District of Machupicchu, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, which is 80 kilometers northwest of the city of Cusco and where the Urubamba River flows. This river crosses the mountains, creating a canyon with a tropical mountain climate. According to many scholars, its original name would have been Llaqtapata.

Machu Picchu is considered a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Its peculiar architectural features, majestic landscape, and the veil of mystery that literature published about the site has woven around it, have made it one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet.

Machu Picchu was declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary in 1981 and has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1983, as part of a whole cultural and ecological complex known as the Historical Sanctuary of Machu Picchu.On July 7, 2007 Machu Picchu was declared one of the seven wonders of the modern world, an honor voted on by some 100 billion people around the world.

They also did not use mortar, a material often used to bind stones together. However, the stones at Machu Picchu were cut so precisely that they fit perfectly together.
