The spectacular Inca empire
There are only a few sites in the world as majestic as Machu Picchu and a visit there is likely to be a once in a lifetime experience.
Built around the early 14000s, some believed it was a ceremonial and administrative centre while others think that it was likely a pilgrimage site or a royal retreat. The only thing known for sure is that the Incan site hidden in the Peruvian Jungle is one of the few pre-Columbian ruins found almost intact.
You will find that Machu Picchu is separated between agricultural and urban sector with defined structures delimiting areas of royal and religious purpose. All around, the agricultural terraces were used to produce food but also protect the city against earthquakes and landslides.
