Machu Picchu is located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level, near Aguas Calientes in Cusco Region of Peru.
Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti. The Spanish never found it so did not plunder or destroy it, as they did many other sites. At Machu Picchu, you'll see beautiful and mysterious archaeological treasures: the Inti Watana, the Temple of the Sun and the Room of the Three Windows.
