For many visitors to Peru and even South America, a visit to the Inca city of Machu picchu is the long-anticipated highpoint of their trip. In a spectacular location, its the best-known archaeological site on the continent. This awe-inspiring ancient city was never revealed to the conquering Spaniards and was virtually forgotten until the early part of the 20th century.
