Machu Picchu

Inarguably the holy grail of all Inca monuments, Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, remains the ancient Peruvians’ most brilliant legacy as well as the continent’s most famous archaeological site.

This spectacularly enigmatic maze of temples, terraced hills, and plazas was the mountain-top citadel of the Inca until the coming of the Europeans.

Today, it enchants visitors with the unspoken secrets of its construction, function, and demise.
