The Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu keeps a profound essence of sacred and mystery, which harmonizes with the natural landscape, being a place of great scientific and cultural significance as an expression of architectural development of culture Inca. Picchu (Machu Picchu original name) was one of these llactas (village), but retained for himself a special role. It was built on land of Pachacutec (the founder of Tawantinsuyu). It was the most beautiful of the empire because it was built to be the refuge and home of the elite of the aristocracy in the event of a surprise attack. The roads leading to Picchu were forbidden to ordinary people because its location was a military secret. The deep gorges and rugged mountains are the best natural defense.
Like all Llacta (village) importance, will never cease to be present in Picchu (Machu Picchu) one Acllawasi (“house of the chosen”), a intiwatana (sundial, marking the seasons), kallancas (sheds for warriors), baths and aqueducts, as well as large areas with terraces.

Cuzco is at an altitude of more than 11,000 feet above sea level, and in many surrounding areas, including Machu Picchu, it is also at high altitudes, though not as high as Cuzco. Altitude sickness can happen to anyone, including healthy people. Symptoms are usually not severe.
Certain medical conditions (such as respiratory diseases) or medications (such as sleeping pills) can increase the risk of high-altitude illness. It may be a good idea to check with your doctor before traveling. You can help your body to acclimatize and avoid altitude sickness through:
Drink plenty of water - at least 4 liters per day above other forms of liquids such as tea or soups
Avoid alcohol, tobacco, and substances that can interfere with a good supply of oxygen to the body or cause dehydration.
Frequent small meals high in carbohydrates.
Getting regular rest.
