Machu Picchu: Majestic Inca citadel
Day 1-2 Machu Picchu
Wonder at the construction of this, Peru’s most iconic site. Whether it was once an Incan citadel, university or town, its setting high in the mountains in the shadow of Huayna Picchu provides a photographic image famous the world over. Marvel at the craftsmanship that enabled stonemasons to do away with mortar and find a quiet spot to contemplate how it came to be abandoned to the jungle for so long.
