Private 2 Hour Tour Machu Picchu Citadel
Certainly, the ‘Holy Grail’ for lovers of Inca monuments, the enigmatic lost city of Machu Picchu is the most famous archaeological site in all of South America and possibly the world.
The spectacular collection of temples, terraced hills, and plazas was the mountaintop citadel of the Inca under Pachacutec and Tupac Yupanqui, until the coming of the Europeans with Pizarro.
It may have the most familiar name, but Machu Picchu has refused to reveal many of its mysteries, including the secrets of its construction, function, and demise. US historian Hiram Bingham discovered the overgrown ruins in 1911, and the quality of the stonework hints that it was an extremely important ceremonial site.
The remains date from around 1450, built at the height of the Inca Empire, and as they escaped being plundered by the Spanish, they include semi-intact icons and shrines that were defaced or removed at other sites. Entering the site, a set of steps leads to the ruined Temple of the Sun and a series of altars and niches. Highlights include the remains of ceremonial baths, the Sacred Plaza with its tremendous views.
