The structures of Machu Picchu were constructed with stones that seem to have been molded as if before hardening had been made of clay. All this skilful Inca stone work has made this Inca site worth visiting at one point in your life. Visiting Machu Picchu will make you admire the Inca architecture and hydraulic engineering. The structures were carefully designed and placed facing celestial bodies and also outlining mountains.

What is Machu Picchu?

The Machu Picchu was abandoned during the second half of the sixteenth century; however, it was never lost as it was occasionally visited and inhabited by local farmers. Some colonial documents refer to the Inca LLaqta of Machu Picchu as the "Settlement of the Incas" or the "Old Village of the Incas named Huayna Picchu". In 1874, the names "Machu Picchu" and "Huayna Picchu" appear for the first time in a cartographic document, which was prepared by engineer Herman Göhring. In 1911, Professor Hiram Bingham visited the llaqta and was impressed with its beauty and majesty. The following year he returned with a multidisciplinary team of professionals who conducted excavations and research in the area.

Machu Picchu Ticket 2022
Inca Trail Machu

Once booked your ticket to Machu Picchu. You can visit and explore the lost city of the Incas in 3 or 4 hrs.

 

The Machu Picchu was planned and built around 1450 CE during the reign of Inca Pachacutec. Its construction demanded the participation of specialists in architecture, engineering, astronomy, and massive amounts of labor. More than 50% of the work required for its erection was focused on site preparation, the foundation and the drainage system. Its construction responds to the need of the Inca State to have a religious, political and administrative center within a sacred space that is the link between the Andes and the Amazon.

 

The LLaqta of Machu Picchu was abandoned during the second half of the sixteenth century; however, it was never lost as it was occasionally visited and inhabited by local farmers. Some colonial documents refer to the Inca LLaqta of Machu Picchu as the "Settlement of the Incas" or the "Old Village of the Incas named Huaynapicchu". In 1874, the names "Machu Picchu" and "Huayna Picchu" appear for the first time in a cartographic document, which was prepared by engineer Herman Göhring. In 1911, Professor Hiram Bingham visited the llaqta and was impressed with its beauty and majesty. The following year he returned with a multidisciplinary team of professionals who conducted excavations and research in the area.

 

Since the 1930’s, the Peruvian government has been promoting the research, conservation, and enhancement of the Historic Sanctuary and the llaqta of Machu Picchu, which represents a masterpiece of art, architecture, and engineering in perfect harmony with nature and is the most important legacy the Inka civilization left to mankind.

 

On the 7th July 2007. Machu Picchu was considered the 7th wonder of the world.
