Inca Citadel featuring the Temple of the Sun
Machu Picchu stands roughly 7,972 feet above sea level, at the peak of a tropical mountain in the Amazonian rainforest. It is an extraordinarily beautiful setting.
It was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Incan Empire.
Its giant walls, temples, terraces and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuos rock Escarpments.
