Machu Picchu, one of the seven worldwonders. The Incas built the estate around 1450 but abandoned it a century later at the time of the Spanish conquest. It was not known to the Spanish during the colonial period and remained unknown to the outside world until American historian Bingham brought it to international attention in 1911. Machu Picchu was built in the classical Inca style, with polished dry-stone walls. Its three primary structures are the Intihuatana, the Temple of the Sun and the Room of the Three Widows.
Amazing view to Machu Picchu at 6 a.m. 😍 getting up early was worth it.Read more

The terracing is joined by diagonal flights of stairs made of flagstones set into the terrace walls. Above the terraces are cliff-hugging footpaths, watched over by caracara falcons and well defended by massive stone doorways, steep stairs and a short tunnel carved out of the rock.
