Some of the best preserved buildings in Machu Picchu. Of course such a great example of Inca architecture. Hopefully you’ve done enough looking on your own to not learn much new from me. No words could fully explain this wonder anyways.

Well preserved ruins of more buildings at Machu Picchu. This area is so remarkable as it is part of the temple. Ask your guide to explain it and good idea to read up about it before going.

More well preserved ruins at Machu Picchu. A guide is preferable to have at this site as the can offer a great deal of knowledge about MP.

These ruins are more than just ruins. This is a sacred temple area that was visited by the Inca Kings and Queens. Hope your guide knows enough to tell you all about it.
