The sanctuary Machu Picchu

The sanctuary Machu Picchu, surrounded by majestic snow-capped mountains, it is easy to appreciate the diversity of flora and fauna, it is an attraction for local people and for tourists.

The Inca architecture was among the finest prehistoric architecture in the world. Examples can be seen in Cusco and Ollantaytambo, and of course here at Machu Picchu. The building style is characterized by exquisitely cut masonry, placed together completely without mortar.

The raw material was granite, worked by stone and sand into irregular shapes that fit together like a gigantic puzzle. Some stones have as many as thirty facets worked into the surface, and as a result, the faces of the stone fit together so tightly that a needle won't fit between them. Those are only few reasons for visiting Machu Picchu in a unique experience:
A wonderful combination of creativity art and the wildness of nature.
