In Machu Picchu, Peru has perhaps the most breath-taking archaeological site in the world. It was so well hidden in the jungle covered ramparts of the Cordillera Villcabamba that the Spaniards never knew of it.
This ‘Lost Incan City,’ as it is sometimes referred, is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Perched upon a mountain ridge at 2,430 meters above sea level, it provides a glimpse into the Incan world and their advanced level of engineering, science and culture.
