MACHUPICCHU / 1 DAY

The citadel of Machu Picchu is by far the most important tourist attraction in Cusco, and is located three hours by train from the city, although it can be reached by helicopter (30 min.) or on foot (four days, via the Inca Trail). Discovered in 1911 by the American explorer Hiram Bingham, this citadel is considered to be one of the most extraordinary examples of landscape architecture in the world. Situated in an enclave on the saddle of a mountain overlooking the deep canyon of the Urubamba river, in an area of lush tropical forest, it served as a place of worship, a site for star-gazing and a private hacienda of the family of the Inca Pachacútec. It consists of two main areas: one agricultural, formed mainly by mountains and food stores; and the other urban, which is noted for its sacred zone, with its temples, squares and royal tombs built with consummate skill. The stairways and canals carved out of stone are recurrent throughout this remarkable archaeological site. Opposite the citadel is the Huayna Picchu mountain, which can be reached via a winding stone walkway. Necessary precautions must be taken during the rainy season (December through March).
