What do you know about “Human Wonders”?
Today, we going to talk about Machu Picchu, because this represents a peruvian pride.
Machu Picchu was a remote Inca city, the majority archaelogists agree that was built during the reing of Pachacutec. It was built around A.D. 1450 when the Inca Empire was expandig its power.
It was built to shelter the Inca aristocracy. Located in a hidden in Cuzco, surrounded by cliffs between the flora, a persona wouldn't realize its existence at a glance.
Pitifully, at 1532 Spanish conquistadors arrived to Cusco and they destroyed many cities, but they didn't see the big city by its location.
Mysteriously, Machu picchu was abandoned and no one knew its existence, until at 1911 the archaeologist Hiram Bingham ,in a expedition, rediscovered this city.
Nowadays Machu Picchu is considered a wonderful of the world, and is a place much visited by the tourists of other countries and also peruvians.
This is amazing!
