    The historical evolution of Machu Picchu

    The Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is one of the best tourist attractions on the planet. Its history goes back more than five hundred years ago, when the emperor Pachacútec ordered its construction in the period of great expansion. After less than 1 century of life, the citadel had to be abandoned. Some four hundred years later, the news of its existence led to research and enhancement work. Learn more!

    • The construction of Machu Picchu - Machu Picchu was built around 1450 by order of the Emperor Pachacutec. The workforce came from settlers from other regions outside of Cusco, the so-called 'mitimaes'. It is estimated that the works lasted 100 years or more and were not fully completed.
    • The wars and the abandonment of the Inca citadel - Between 1537 and 1572 the last Incas hid in the deep jungle of Vilcabamba from where they fought the Spanish. The 'Vilcabamba Wars' forced the inhabitants of Machu Picchu to flee. Thus, the Inca citadel was abandoned.
    • The rediscovery of Machu Picchu - Machu Picchu was abandoned for more than three hundred years. The thick vegetation covered its walls. Only the local inhabitants knew of the existence of this site, but they were unaware of its great importance. Thus, in 1911, the American explorer Hiram Bingham broke the world news of its existence.
    • Machu Picchu, the Wonder of the World - Work on Machu Picchu began in 1911. Only in the 21st century did visits increase considerably, and consequently, the popularity of the Inca citadel. Thus, in 2007, in a worldwide vote, Machu Picchu was chosen as one of the '7 Wonders of the Modern World'.
