Machu Picchu is an ancient Inca city located on a mountain ridge in the Andes, above the Sacred Valley. This city was built in the 15th century, during the Inca Empire, but was abandoned shortly after the Spanish conquest of Peru. The city remained hidden for centuries until it was rediscovered in 1911 by American archaeologist Hiram Bingham.
Machu Picchu is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Peru and attracts millions of visitors every year. The site is one of the 7 wonders of the world in addition to being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983.
The Sacred Valley is located between Cusco and Machu Picchu. This valley is known for its natural beauty, traditional villages, Inca archaeological sites and local crafts. It was considered a sacred place for the Incas and was little known to foreigners before the discovery of Machu Picchu. The valley is home to several archaeological sites, including the ruins of Pisac, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero, as well as the salt pans of Maras.
