Machu Picchu strikes one as a magical place, uniquely situated in the verdant and picturesque Peruvian Andes. Here, in the 15th century, the Inca Empire built a city of palaces, temples, dwellings and storehouses. Both the agricultural and urban sectors exist in harmony with the natural contours of the mountain.
