Machu Picchu
Skip to review content
Chilean poet Pablo Neruda called Machu Picchu one of the greatest marvels of South America. Hidden away in the Andes at an altitude of more than 2,400 metres, this majestic 15th-century Inca citadel was discovered in 1911 by American explorer Hiram Bingham III. The rule restricting the number of visitors to 2,500 daily has been lifted, but sharing it with tourists (and llamas) doesn’t diminish the sense of wonder at how the Incas built the terraces, temples, plazas and palaces with such massive stones, hand-carved and pieced together without mortar.
