Machu Picchu, is considered, the most impressive urban creation of the Incas who lived in the area. At once, the city was abandoned, and the forest covered the spectacular buildings. It is one of the only Inca cities in the world that remained almost intact and was not destroyed by the Spanish conqueror.
The city of Machu Picchu, (“the ancient peak”), was built in the 15th century by the Inca people, some say, over the foundations of ancient buildings. Slowly and steadily, the Incas built a small city – large and chiseled stones, taking full advantage of the peaks of the Andes. Machu Picchu is located about 80 km west of Cusco City at an altitude of 2500 meters above sea level.
