Machu Picchu is the last Inca city and the most famous in Peru. This city is not mentioned in any Spanish chronicle; therefore, the information about this mythical city leaves many hypotheses of the archaeologists who study this complex open.
The inhabitants of the area have known about the existence of Machu Picchu since time immemorial. But the citadel of Machupicchu was made known by an 11-year-old boy, who led the American Hiram Bingham to Machu Picchu on July 24, 1911. An important date in our history, due to the fact that this important Inca complex became known to the world.
Among Hiram Bingham’s brief reviews and photos of the time, we can distinguish a Machu Picchu covered with vegetation and stagnant in time. Because of this, the discoverer and his team returned in 1912 and 1915, to do a general cleaning of Machu Picchu.
Over the years, exploration, excavation and study work has been carried out on the complex to determine its function, despite all this. Machu Picchu continues to raise questions about its correct activity, which demands an interest for any visitor.
