Photographer's Note

A maioria dos arquelogos acredita que Machu Picchu foi construdo como uma propriedade do imperador Inca Pachacuti (14381472). Muitas vezes erroneamente chamado de "Cidade Perdida dos Incas" (um ttulo mais precisamente aplicado a Vilcabamba ), o cone mais familiar da civiliza鈬o Inca . Os Incas construram a propriedade por volta de 1450, mas a abandonaram um s馗ulo depois, na 駱oca da conquista espanhola . Embora conhecido localmente, n縊 era conhecido pelos espanhis durante o perodo colonial e permaneceu desconhecido do mundo exterior at que o historiador americano Hiram Bingham chamou a aten鈬o internacional em 1911.

Machu Picchu foi construdo no estilo cl疽sico Inca, com paredes de pedra seca polida . Suas tr黌 estruturas prim疵ias s縊 o Intihuatana , o Templo do Sol e a Sala das Tr黌 Janelas . A maioria dos edifcios foi reconstruda para dar aos turistas uma ideia melhor de como eles surgiram originalmente. Em 1976, trinta por cento de Machu Picchu foram restaurados e a restaura鈬o continua.

Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was constructed as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti (14381472). Often mistakenly referred to as the "Lost City of the Incas" (a title more accurately applied to Vilcabamba), it is the most familiar icon of Inca civilization. The Incas built the estate around 1450 but abandoned it a century later at the time of the Spanish Conquest. Although known locally, it was not known to the Spanish during the colonial period and remained unknown to the outside world until American historian Hiram Bingham brought it to international attention in 1911.

Machu Picchu was built in the classical Inca style, with polished dry-stone walls. Its three primary structures are the Intihuatana, the Temple of the Sun, and the Room of the Three Windows. Most of the outlying buildings have been reconstructed in order to give tourists a better idea of how they originally appeared. By 1976, thirty percent of Machu Picchu had been restored and restoration continues.
