Machu Picchu, often dubbed the "Lost City of the Incas," is an ancient citadel nestled high in the Andes Mountains of Peru. This UNESCO World Heritage site is renowned for its stunning terraced architecture and panoramic views. Believed to have been built in the 15th century and abandoned during the Spanish conquest, Machu Picchu remains an enigmatic symbol of Inca civilization's ingenuity and cultural legacy.

 

Cusco

Cusco, the historic capital of the Inca Empire, is a vibrant city steeped in history and culture. Its cobblestone streets are lined with colonial-era architecture, Inca ruins, and lively plazas. Highlights include the Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral of Santo Domingo, and the Qorikancha temple. Cusco serves as a gateway to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, attracting visitors with its rich heritage, bustling markets, and vibrant culinary scene.

 

The Sacred Valley

The Sacred Valley, or Valle Sagrado, stretches along the Urubamba River, flanked by towering mountains, and dotted with picturesque villages and ancient ruins. It served as the heartland of the Inca Empire, revered for its fertile soil and strategic significance. Today, the Sacred Valley is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and cultural explorers, offering opportunities for hiking, visiting traditional markets, and exploring archaeological sites such as Ollantaytambo and Pisac.
