The sanctuary, surrounded by majestic snow-capped
mountains, it is easy to appreciate the diversity of flora and
fauna, it is an attraction for local people and for tourists.
The Inca architecture was among the finest prehistoric architecture
in the world. Examples can be seen in Cuzco and Ollantaytambo, and
of course here at Machu Picchu. The building style is characterized
by exquisitely cut masonry, placed together completely without
mortar. The raw material was granite, worked by stone and sand into
irregular shapes that fit together like a gigantic puzzle. Some
stones have as many as thirty facets worked into the surface, and as
a result, the faces of the stone fit together so tightly that a
needle won't fit between them.
Those are only few reasons for visiting Machu
Picchu in a unique experience:
a wonderful combination of creativity art and the
wildness of nature.
