Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu was a citadel dedicated to the Inca gods. It is also believed that it was built as the residence of the Inca emperor Pachacutec. The truth is that carbon 14 tests indicate that it was built in 1450 and that the temples and enclosures that were built there were worked with great effort and beauty. Today, after many years, most of its structure is still intact. Tourists who visit it can know: the Sun Gate, the Main Temple, the Intihuatana, the Intipunku, the Temple of the Condor, the Temple of the Moon, the Sacred Rock and many other buildings, which together are more than 150 enclosures.
