Machu Picchu photographed by Ramona Johnston. Machu Picchu is a pre-Columbian 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres above sea level in the Cusco Region of Peru, South America. The Incas built Machu Picchu around 1450, but abandoned it as an official site for the Inca rulers a century later at the time of the Spanish Conquest. Although known locally, Machu Picchu was unknown to the outside world before being brought to international attention in 1911 by the American historian Hiram Bingham.
