Machu Picchu is an ancient ruined city constructed by the Inca and is Peru’s landmark.
At an altitude of 2430 m, Machu Picchu was built in the 15th century. The ruined city is located in the Cusco region of Peru, between the two peaks Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu. In 1983 it was appointed World Heritage and added to the “new seven Wonders of the World” in 2007 because it is the largest Inca city ever discovered. Since then, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South America and the whole world.
