This place is at the top of many travelers ' lists. An impressive "the lost city" Machu Picchu in Cusco was found in 1911 year and is one of the most famous settlements, created by the Empire of the Incas.

В 15-м веке инки совершили замечательный строительный подвигна плоской вершине 2430 метровой горы были размещены 140 построек, включая храмы и дома. Город был разделен на области для королевской семьи и для низших классов.

Потрясающая архитектураэто самая загадочная часть Мачу-Пикчу. Как они могли управлять огромной империей в изолированной области Перу без создания каких-либо рынков является довольно загадочным фактом, и резко отличается от большинства других старых городов, где рыночные площади были ключевыми. Почему же у них не было характерной для всего остального мира экономики, и как они процветали без неё?
