Machu Picchu - The Lost City of the Incas - Images
Since this site covers several subjects that relate to ancient history and whatnot, I decided to do a
pictorial page over this lovely icon of the Inca World that is often called "The Lost City of the Incas."
But first, if you need a quick history lesson for this area:
Machu Picchu was built around 1450, at the height of the Inca Empire. It was abandoned just over
100 years later, in 1572, as a belated result of the Spanish Conquest. It is likely that most of its
inhabitants died from smallpox introduced by travelers before the Spanish conquistadores arrived
in the area. The latter had notes of a place called Piccho, although there is no record of the Spanish
having visited the remote city. The types of sacred rocks defaced by the conquistadors in other
locations are untouched at Machu Picchu.

The following images of the Machu Picchu comes from the online encyclopedia known as "Wikipedia." Although, most of the
images are not under copyright law and don't require image credits, some of them may. In the event that you decide to use these
images for your own personal websites or blogs, etc., I would first visit the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machu_Picchu, to check
if any of these images require special crediting. I'll provide an active link to that page in a moment, just for that reason. Enjoy...

When it comes to finding depictions of the "Lost City of the Incas," my absolute favorite thus far,
is the one I posted below. It is a spectacular overview of this ancient, sacred place, from high
up above on Huayna Picchu. No wonder the Machu Picchu was voted (in 2007) as one of the
New 7 Wonders of the World via a worldwide Internet Poll. Anyway, check out this splendid,
magnificent image below......
