The Fortified City of the Incas
November 2018
Machu Picchu

At this well fortified site Inca warriors actually defeated the Spanish invaders
The gate to the city

Walking through this 15th century town one finds
big cobblestones lining a rectangular grid of narrow streets

Many houses are built on original Inca foundations


The town square remembers the battle
Looking up from the town
Beginning the climb up Temple Hill
Looking back down at the city one can see the hillside guardposts
from which the people were warned of impending attack
Looking at structure of the nearby hillsides
Trail to view additional structures
Sure footed alpacas
Looking down from the Temple of the Sun
Each stone of the uncompleted temple weighs more than 50 tons
