Description

Machu Picchu is one of those places that every single traveler should experience at least once in their lives.
Machu Picchu is an Inca citadel set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. Built in the 15th century and later abandoned, it’s renowned for its sophisticated dry-stone walls that fuse huge blocks without the use of adhesive components, intriguing buildings that play on astronomical alignments and panoramic views. Its exact former use remains a mystery.
