Fun Facts About Machu Picchu

150+ Buildings

Machu Picchu is made up of more than 150 buildings ranging from baths and houses to temples and sanctuaries.

Elevation

Located at 7,000 feet above sea level , Machu Picchu is the most visited tourist destination in Peru and was built in 1450 AD.

Discovery

Machu Picchu was only known locally until a Yale Professor re-discovered the site in 1911. His book, The Lost City of the Incas, was based on his findings.

Well Preserved

Machu Picchu is one of the most well-preserved Inca cities and an archeological gem, as it wasn't destroyed during the Spanish Conquest like other ancient cities.
