Machu Picchu

( This Wanderlust Wednesday post is long overdue! 😀 )

Location: Peru

Description: Machu Picchu is a citadel that was built during the fifteenth century by the Incans — a group of South American Indians. It is believed that the fortress was intended to serve as an estate for the Incan emperor Pachacuti.

Fun fact: Disney animators drew on Machu Picchu for inspiration in creating Kuzco’s empire in The Emperor’s New Groove. See the resemblance?
