Machu Picchu sights and attractions

Perched upon a mountaintop at 7,970 ft. above sea level and hidden for centuries from plain sight amid misty forested peaks, Peru's fabled "lost city of the Incas", Machu Picchu, is one of South America's top attractions. Constructed during the 15th century by the Incas, and discovered in 1911 by an American historian, it is an extraordinary feat of engineering. Palaces and temples such as the Temple of the Sun and the Royal and Sacred areas were carefully crafted from stone by hand and spread out over 80,500 acres of vertiginous terraces and open spaces, overlooked by the looming Wayna Picchu mountain, the highest point of the complex, affording dizzying views.
