Machu Picchu (“Old Peak”) is a pre-Columbian Inca site declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. According to some documents dating back to the middle of the 16th century, the whole complex was one of the summer residences of the Inca Pachakutiq, founder and first emperor of Tawantinsuyu.
