Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu in Peru was built around the year 1450, but abandoned a hundred years later, at the time of the Spanish invasion. It is 2,430 meters above sea level and is often referred to as “The Lost City of the Incas”.

Machu Picchu is now a tourist attraction and about 400,000 people visited the site last year.

Here is a photo which shows all its beauty.
