Machu Picchu means old mountain, named for the location of the Inca citadel. The architectural complex was built approximately in the 15th century by the Inca Pachacutec, according to historians. The exact location is in the district of Machu Picchu, province of Urubamba, 112.5 km northeast of the city of Cusco.
Machu Picchu was interconnected with the entire Inca empire through the Qhapaq Ñan, known route of the Inca’s roads. Its annual temperature is of 6º C minimum and maximum of 21º C. The citadel has two sectors: the agricultural one, conformed by the platforms and the urban one, that fulfilled administrative functions.
The average altitude of the citadel is 2453 msnm. The mountains of Wayna Picchu and Machu Picchu are ideal for panoramic photographs of the entire architectural complex.
