As one of the best-known archaeological sites South America, Machu Picchu is a must for all visitors to Peru. Situated on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba River and surrounded by tropical forest, the Inca city enjoys a truly spectacular setting. Believed to have been built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti, the site was abandoned at the time of the Spanish Conquest though remained unknown to the Spanish, perhaps explaining the city’s surprising state of preservation. Since its discovery in 1911, many of the outlying buildings have been reconstructed to give visitors a better idea of the grandeur of the structures.
