Machu Picchu, the "lost city of the Incas" was built in the 15th century and was rediscovered in 1911 by the American explorer Hiram Bingham. After a detailed inspection of the different areas with temples and terraces, you will take the shuttle back to Aguas Calientes and then return to Poroy or Ollantaytambo by train.
