PERU CIRCUIT LAND TOUR – CUSCO – MACHU PICCHU

22-26 SEPTEMBER, 2016

The breathtaking Inca city of Machu Picchu was built atop the Andes mountains in Peru. … Historians believe Machu Picchu was built at the height of the Inca Empire, which dominated western South America in the 15th and 16th centuries. It was abandoned an estimated 100 years after its construction, probably around the time the Spanish began their conquest of the mighty pre-Columbian civilization in the 1530s. There is no evidence that the conquistadors ever attacked or even reached the mountaintop citadel.
