Machu Picchu was built by the Incas in the XV century sorrounded by 6 sacred mountains. It is probably the most familiar symbol of the Inca Empire, built by Inca Pachacuti; its name comes from a Quechua word that means “Old Mountain”. This site was built entirely of stone, using every space in harmony with function and nature. Machupichu has been known as the “Lost City of the Incas” named by Mr. Hiram Bingam who discovered it in 1911.
