 View of Machu Picchu marvel

MACHU PICCHU was shown to the World in 1911 by Hiram Bingham, but the name of Machu Picchu was given by Melchor Arteaga, the guide of Bingham. For some scientifics, it was a monastery to educate women. For others, it was like a mausoleum to keep the Inka mummy.

These are just two among many hypothesis about he function of this citu. In general, this sanctuary (3rd. hypothesis) was divided in 2 sector: Agricultural and Urban.

It contains temples, palaces, houses, stores and overall buildings which accomplished religious ceremonial functions. One of the misteries is the construction in stone. The union between them without cement or any kind of glue. Las squares, aqueducts, the vigilance tower, the solar clock, among other vestiges, is a big testimonial of the high tecnology of the Inkas.

After this exciting visit, we will go down to Aguas Calientes town to have LUNCH on a touristic restaurant. Visit to the town and return to Cuzco city.

Korikancha

Anfiteatro de Kenko
Kenko
is a quechwa (peruvian language) word that mans "laberynth". We don't know certainly what it was. Maybe the name was given due to the semi-circular construction. Several theories state that it was an altar, a court, an inka tomb, etc. But it is asumed that it was one of the most important sanctuaries of the Inkas.





Tampumachay o Templo del Agua

Tampumachay
comes from two kechwa words: "tampu" lodging y "machay" place of rest. The theories state that for the waterfall, it could have been like a place for the Water Worship. It is well appreciated for the stones architecture shown in 4 tearraces in different levels.
