Machu Picchu is hidden away 2,430 meters (7,970 ft) above sea level, deep in the mountains of Peru. It is said that this forgotten Incan city was built as an estate for Emperor Pachacuti around 1450 and was abandoned a century later during the Spanish Conquest.

Nestled on a small hilltop between the Andes Mountains and the sacred Urubamba Valley, the majestic city was slowly lost to memory. While local people knew of the site, it was never discovered by the Spanish.

In 1911, a local Peruvian guide led Yale lecturer Hiram Bingham up a steep mountainside, making him the first Western scholar to ever lay eyes on this forgotten city. To this day, many of Machu Picchu’s mysteries remain unsolved and lost to history. In 1983, Machu Picchu was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
