Passageway

Getting from room to room inside one of the structures in Machu Picchu.

Passageway

Each individual block is shaped to fit precisely. There is no mortar holding them in place.

Quite remarkable as the Incas used no draft animals, iron tools, or wheels.

Safe Place for Storage

On the tip of the rock are terraces and buildings for storing grain.

Graneries

One can sign up to take the trail to the top. A limited number of people per day get to do this. (Although too small to see in this small format, there are people up there.) There is no chairlift.

We took a pass.

Machu Picchu Site

This photograph has been made a million times by others.

To resist making one for myself was futile!
