Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Arequipa, Lima, Cuzco... Peru is a country full of places to visit, but do not always know how to handle those places.
Immensity is one of the first sensations that awaken Peru. Anyone who lands in Cuzco feel infinitely small compared to all that Peru has to offer.
It is not a country that has been adapted to the American way of life as Bolivia, that shares many traditions as well as many parades with the Americans. Peru has nothing to do with it. It's a country willing to preserve their traditions, whatever it takes, even if it sometimes necessary technological advances.
And it is what stands out in the country is its incredible effort to maintain traditions and that no one forget that there was once the Inca Empire, the "navel of the world". An example very clear this is possessing his own drink, Inka Cola. This soft drink, Coca-Cola purchased time after its release, has only allowed the sale in Peru and is a source of pride for Peruvians. Nor is it is a little profitable and minority drink which is preserved because Yes. INKA Cola is sold even more than Coca Cola and all its citizens worship it.
With a flavor that can remember the tail or even the gums of tail and a very competitive price (1 nuevo sol), it seems that this product it has much history to create. Machu Picchu has tours online.
It is clear that is you cannot speak of Peru or the Inkacola not to mention the main tourist attraction in the country, Machu Picchu. It's an old inca town which was built around the 15th century, considered a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. This place has become one of the most visited places on the planet thanks to its peculiar landscape and architectural characteristics and a true veil of mystery that surrounds it. Considered one of the new seven wonders of the world since 2007, Peruvians show with pride and anxiety.
Since it is a former village which also had a part dedicated to religious rites, the Citadel is divided in part agricultural and urban part. The incas claimed that they lived in the mountains because they felt closer to their gods in this way. This explains the location of the city and its buildings in the mountains.
Huayna Picchu, the mountain of 2,667 feet that accompanies the Machu Picchu, offers an interesting view of archaeological remains and the Urubamba river, whose turbulent waters you can hear thunder on a site so high. Since this summer rises to the top of this mountain were reduced to 400 daily for the sake of the structure. These data relate to the celebration this summer also the centenary of the rediscovery by Hiram Bingham ruins in 1911. Many people found a good excuse this event to know the place, something that led to greater security measures for the sake of tourists as the monument.
Machu Picchu is part of the so-called "Inca Trail", which is the extensive system of roads built during the Inca Empire by its servers in. All of them converge in the city of Cuzco and this is the way used by the conquerors to go to Bolivia, Chile and the pampas of argentina. Four main roads were created:Cuzco to Quito (Ecuador) of Cusco to Nazca (Peru Center) of Cuzco to Chuquiago (Bolivia) from Cuzco to Arica and Atacama (Chile) with a branch that came to Tucumán (Argentina)
The most important road was known as Capac Nan or "Royal Road", which had a length of 5,200 kilometres and began in Quito, passed through Cusco and ended in Tucumán.
In conclusion, it is possible that Peru remained an incredible country without all its tourist attractions but the world would not be the same without places like Machu Picchu, one of its wonders.Article copyright: Marina Alonso Álvarez.
