The visit of Machu Picchu can be as impressing as the visit of the Pyramids in Egypt… You have to imagine out from the postcard and open the eyes to the reality of being in this mystical site. The beginning of the visit is quite promising already with the surrounding landscape before getting there. Even before getting to the entrance the site remains hidden as a secret. The citadel is deemed one of the world's finest examples of landscape architecture. It is split into two major areas: the agricultural zone, made up of terracing and food storehouses; and the urban zone, featuring the sacred sector, with temples, squares and royal tombs which have been carved to an extraordinary degree of perfection. The stone staircases and canals are found throughout this unique archaeological site.
