A place travelers can visit Machu Picchu / Inca ruins
Reviews: Machu Picchu / Inca ruins
General description: Machu Picchu / Inca ruinsThe Machu Picchu is a monumental town. It is known internationally as the most important enclave of South American indigenous history. It is included among the seven wonders of the world. This is one of the most visited architectural ensembles in the world.
Machu Picchu was built by the Inca Pachacutec in the XV century as a luxurious range of civil and religious buildings. The whole site is the most spectacular part. This is so because its terrain is unique in the world, standing at the height of an isthmus between mountains.
You can visit the whole year round, paying entrance. Access to the ruins can be done traveling by train, car or bus. The visit to this wonder is, itself, a good reason to visit Peru.
