Machu Picchu on the Web

This site holds more than 300 resources about Machu Picchu, the great "lost city" of the Incas, "discovered"—for archaeology anyway—by Hiram Bingham in 1911.

Web Resources

This site links to 190 web resources. Start with About Machu Picchu for an overview of the site and its significance. Some of the best pages, however, are found under The Discovery, and excellent and up-to-date material appears in conjunction with the traveling exhibit Machu Picchu: Unveiling the Mystery of the Incas. The Hot Topics section covers conservation, construction, the controversy over Machu Picchu's neighbor, Llactapata, and other topics. See the left-hand bar for a complete list of all the topics covered.
