The site of Machu Picchu is considered one of the best preserved examples of a major Inca site. However, basic questions like why it was built in such a difficult location and what does it mean had remain unanswered. It is demonstrated that the site is situated in the centre of the sacred mountains and next to a sacred river which turn is linked with the sunís passage, thereby forming a cosmological and sacred geographical centre. (Johan Reinhard / Machu Picchu The Sacred Centre).

This stone citadel, located 112 km from Cusco, was discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911.The citadel was built on a very special spot covered in vegetation between two mountains: the Machu Picchu (old mountain) and Huayna Picchu (young mountain), at the foot of which meanders the Urubamba or Vilcanota River (lower Jungle featuring abundant flora and fauna).

Its location is definitely strategic, and tells you more about the Incaís civilisation, and the degree of harmonic blending of its architectural expression with the surrounding countryside.
