At a distance of 120 kms. (75 miles) from Cusco, in the valley of the Urubamba river, Machu Picchu rises to an altitude of 2,400 meters (7,900 ft.) above sea level between the Huayna Picchu (young peak) and Machu Picchu (old peak). It lies within the spectacular framework provided by the exuberant vegetation of the nearby jungle and the rugged landscape. Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, one of the most famed examples of Inca architecture, is believed to have been built in the mid-15th century by Inca Pachacutec. Lost in history, it was not discovered until 1911 by American explorer Hiram Bingham.

The ruins are situated on the eastern slope of Machu Picchu in two separate areas: the agricultural and the urban. The latter includes the civil sector (dwellings, canalizations,) and the sacred sector (temples, mausoleums, squares, royal houses). Although constructions show different levels of architecture, religious buildings exhibit a high degree of perfection. The construction was with general use of stone, and the roofs were built of tree trunks and thatched with ichu or straw. The walls were made with an inward inclination for protection against earthquakes.

From the peak of the Huayna Picchu, situated opposited Machu Picchu, there is a prodigious panoramic view of the imposing mass of ruins and the Urubamba valley. The breathtaking views from this mountain-top citadel and its well-preserved ruins are a photographer’s dream.
