What does Machu Picchu mean?
Machu Picchu means ‘Old Mountain’ in the indigenous Quechua language, also known as Quechua or Southern Quechua. World Heritage and New Wonder of the World, Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas, constitutes a historical, natural and architectural ensemble unparalleled, a tourist destination that has earned the category of inescapable.
What was Machu Picchu?
Machu Picchu is an Inca city surrounded by temples, platforms and water channels, built on top of a mountain. Its construction was built with large blocks of stone joined together, without the use of amalgam. At the moment it is considered cultural patrimony of the humanity when being recognized like important political center, religious and administrative of the Incaic time.
Where it is located?
Machu Picchu, which in Spanish means “old mountain”, is the most famous Inca citadel in the world. Located 110 kilometers northeast of Cusco, in the province of Urubamba, this architectural jewel is surrounded by temples, platforms and water channels.
What is Machu Picchu?
Machu Picchu (in Quechua “Old Mountain”) is one of the 7 new wonders of the world located in Peru, in the Department of Cuzco, in the province of Urubamba.
This ancient Andean town was built in the 15th century as a resting place and religious sanctuary.
It is currently a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and the most visited tourist destination in Peru.
Who built the city of Machu Picchu?
In southern Peru, on the eastern slope of the Central Andes, is located one of the many wonders of the world, the ruins of Machu Picchu. This fascinating Inca Andean town was built in the middle of the 15th century and historians point out that it was the resting place of the first Inca Emperor Pachacútec, as well as being a religious center.
It was discovered in 1911 by Hiram Bingham, an American history professor, thanks to contacts with the settlers of that region who guided him to the area in question. His astonishment was unequaled. By the way, although it is attributed to have belonged to the mentioned Pachacútec, these data could be incorrect and therefore its history would be another.
Apparently, it was the Inca Wiraqocha, eighth king of Cusco and not his son Pachacútec, who ordered to build this palace. It was destined to be a resting place with temples for the Sun god and the Moon goddess and numerous houses (Acllawasi) to house its beautiful women (Aqllak’una), as well as becoming an astronomical observatory thanks to its location.
But it was not all the color of roses for Wiraqocha who is forced to flee, in front of an invasion by the powerful Chanka State, commanded by an ambitious king called Uscovilca, to this citadel that they said was considered the “little Cuzco” for its similarity with the Inca capital.
Faced with such cowardice, the youngest son of Wiraqocha, Kusi Yupanki, urges his father to surrender to the Chanka State but he refuses to bend his will. Being aware of reality as a slave that would wait for them, Kusi forms an army, defeats Uscovilca after a cruel battle and decides to give the booty of war to his father who treats him with a lot of contempt, does not accept his gift and also adds that he should give it to him to his successor, his brother Urko.
Humiliated, Kusi returns to Cuzco to take power, to rebuild the city and to plan the murder of his brother, his main rival, a murder that would materialize later.
Upon learning of the cruel homicide carried out by his son, Wiraqocha decides to live in his palace forever surrounded by everything he needed to live. Until the Royal Council designs an idea that would allow Kusi to attract his father: they told him that his son “invited” him to personally observe the transformation he had made in his main city.
Wiraqocha agreed to the proposal and left for Cuzco where he was totally amazed by the renewed city he found, to the point of naming Kusi with the name of Pachacutec which means the “Transformer of the World”. Kusi was grateful for the compliment, but quickly stripped his father of the crown and put it on his head and proclaimed himself king by having his father kneel before him, drinking foul corn beer (chicha) then ordered him banished to live his last and sad years of life in his own creation, converted from that moment into a dwelling of loneliness.
After the death of Wiraqocha, Pachacútec orders to depopulate the citadel and abandon it forever. In this way, the ruins of Machu Picchu were preserved practically intact to this day but under the knowledge of many locals, especially Agustín Lizárraga, who did not decide to reveal the secret for fear of being considered crazy, until Bingham appeared on the scene and He appropriated the find, taking also a host of very valuable pieces that the Peruvian state is still trying to recover.
How old is Machu Picchu?
Machu Picchu was built in 1450 as revealed by Carbon 14; The mystery of the origin of Machu Picchu, the most representative and visited city of ancient Peru, could be clarified thanks to the carbon 14 test, which places the date of its construction in the year 1450 of the Christian era, during the reign of Inca Pachacutec. With these new investigations the theories that attributed to Machu Picchu an antiquity of 1,000 years or made to appear as a fort built to defend against the Spanish conquerors are coming down. The Machu Picchu is located on the top of the mountain of the same name, 2,400 meters high, in a subtropical area, between the Andes and the Amazon rainforest, 112 kilometers north of Cuzco, the Inca capital.
What was the reason for its construction?
At first it was believed that Machu Picchu was built in order to serve as; military fortress or even as a rest home for Pachacútec; both hypotheses that were taken as true, lost weight with the passage of time. Comprehensive studies, carried out by some of the best specialists, have revealed that Machu Picchu was used as a place of worship, a religious sanctuary. Other speculations suggest that it served as a monastery, where the girls who would serve the Inca and the High Priest were prepared, since of the 135 bodies found, 109 turned out to belong to women. Although its use as a palace is not ruled out.
Why did Pachacútec build Machu Picchu in this place?
We can conclude that the interest of Pachacútec to build a city like this, in a place like this, responds to what was admired by the place, an exuberant environment surrounded by natural beauty and apus (sacred mountains), which could serve as a checkpoint and colonization of an Empire that grew incredibly fast, acting as an entrance to the Antisuyo, from the heart of the empire; In addition, the area gave access to important products that could only be obtained in the jungle; like coca.
Who discovered Machu Picchu?
Hiram Bingham (1875-1956) made his first trip to Peru in 1911 following the footprint of Simon Bolivar, once in Cusco reoriented his expedition to the Inca vestiges, many of which were found in the Vilcanota-Urubamba River corridor . The American professor Hiram Bingham was interested in finding the lost city of Vilcabamba; Last place where the Incas hid.
An American Dr. Giesecke, then rector of the San Antonio Abad University of Cusco, is aware of the existence of several Inca ruins, in the town of Mandor, province of the Convention, one of these was Machu Picchu, Giesecke aware of the interest of Bingham informs him of these facts.
Earlier, Charles Wiener, an Austrian-French scientist, traveled the Andes from 1875 to 1877, in his book Peru and Bolivia: a travelogue Wiener clearly mentions the reference to a place called Machu Picchu, which he was about to go to, since he already had to the guides contacted. The reason why I do not get to explore Machu Picchu is not known.
On July 23, 1911, Bingham’s group arrives near the citadel of Machu Picchu. The weather conditions were very bad, they stayed in the house of peasants who lived in the area, here the teacher finds out about some ruins that existed in the surroundings, he offers a dollar of silver to the farmer Melchor Arteaga for taking him to the place described.
On July 24, Bingham, the peasant and a representative of the Peruvian government were in spite of the bad weather, gray clouds and tropical rains. The other team members prefer to stay on the site and wash their clothes. The teacher and the two companions had to cross the wild Vilcanota River through a flimsy bridge of logs and then climb 700 meters of a steep mountain. Halfway there they meet local peasant children, who serve as new guides, since they knew the whole area. They had to climb the Inca embankments until finally their persistence was rewarded. I stand in front of the walls of Machu Picchu. The tropical vegetation had covered the ruins, certain areas were in sight.
Hiram Bingham made a total of 3 trips to Peru the first was in 1911, at that time he was only half a day in Machu Picchu, children from the area guided him took several photographs, he managed to capture the temple of the 3 windows, the Tower. Only after returning to the United States did he realize the importance of the site he had been and decided to return with funding from Yale University and The National Geographic Society in 1912. On his different expeditions Bingham came to take about 11,000 photos of the complex.
In his book “The discovery of Machu Picchu” he wrote the following: “Suddenly I found myself standing in front of the walls of a ruin and houses built with the best quality of Inca art.” The walls were hard to see as the trees and the moss had covered the stones for centuries, but in the shadow of the bamboo and climbing the bushes were the walls visible in blocks of white granite cut with the highest precision, I found bright temples, royal houses, a large square and thousands of houses It seemed to be in a dream. ”
From the 20s of the last century the excavation and consolidation works of Machu Picchu began, this continues until the 1950s when the complex is open to tourists.
When was Machu Picchu officially discovered?
Machu Picchu was discovered in 1867, forty-four years earlier than previously thought. A detailed investigation, carried out by the historian and explorer Paolo Greer, reveals that Machu Picchu was first discovered by a German adventurer and entrepreneur, Augusto Berns, in 1867, and not by the archaeologist of Yale University Hiram Bingham in 1911, as it was believed until now.
Greer’s investigation into archives in the United States and Peru has unearthed documents proving that Berns created a company specifically to loot Machu Picchu and its immediate surroundings. The company, known as Compañía Anónima Explotadora de las Huacas del Inca, had the support of some of Peru’s most important personalities, including the country’s president. The findings of Greer, examined together with documentation material discovered by a Peruvian archaeologist, show that in 1887 the Peruvian government consented to the sacking of Machu Picchu and signed an agreement with Berns, according to which he was allowed to export the material and the Government 10% of the income was reserved.
One of Berns’ business partners in the company was the director of the National Library of Peru at the time. His colleague of more rank (the vice president of the company) was professor of pathology at a university in Lima and an antique collector who ended up selling his collection to a museum in Berlin.
Machu Picchu was built in the 15th century by the Inca Emperor Pachacuti, who almost certainly was buried there when he died, in 1471. The city had an important temple in honor of the sun and it is likely that Pachacuti’s tomb and temple were decorated with large amounts of gold, most of which was almost certainly withdrawn in 1432, in a vain attempt to rescue Atahualpa, the last Inca emperor, captured by the Spanish conquistadors. However, it is conceivable that Berns would find huge quantities of high quality ceramics and other items that were not required for the rescue.
During his investigation, Greer located a list of 57 contacts of Berns, Americans, British and of other nationalities, and other people who possibly bought the antiques that Berns or his associates found in Machu Picchu. But until now no list of the findings has been discovered and the investigation will now be extended to the United States and Europe to try to locate any lost treasure of Machu Picchu in private collections and other collections.
Greer has found in the Peruvian archives documents written by Berns that reveal that between 1867 and 1870 he explored Machu Picchu and discovered several underground structures sealed. Before planning, with government support, the way to loot the place, Berns predicted that these structures “would undoubtedly contain objects of great value”: the “treasures of the Incas.”
At first, Berns traveled to the area to cut trees and make sleepers for a Peruvian railway project. By 1870 he had already made a preliminary exploration of Machu Picchu. Later, as the Chilean army had occupied much of Peru during the Pacific War of 1879-83, Berns moved for a time to Panama and launched a Peruvian company, registered in the United States, called the Mining Company of Inca Mines. of Gold and Silver. Finally, in 1887, he returned to Peru and created his antique looting company, and presumably he returned to Machu Picchu, although what he found there and then sold remains a complete mystery. Another 40 years passed before the city was rediscovered by the famous Yale scholar, Hiram Bingham.
The revelation that archaeological treasures were plundered, almost certainly, with the support of the Peruvian government at the end of the 19th century comes just at a time when Peru is redoubling its demands that the material that Hiram Bingham found in Machu be returned to him Picchu (and who is currently at Yale University)

CONTRASTS
The contrast between the authentic discoverer of Machu Picchu – whose existence has been known recently – and Hiram Bingham could not be greater. August R. Berns was a dark German businessman who founded a small railway sleeper production business in Peru in the 1860s. He bought some land near the then unknown ruins of Machu Picchu to cut trees from which to extract wood. He discovered and explored the ruins between 1867 and 1870.
Hiram Bingham was an American historian, archaeologist, explorer, aviator and politician. Some have come to suggest that the Indiana Jones character’s box office character is inspired by him. Bingham taught at the universities of Harvard, Princeton and Yale, and was a member of the United States Senate and governor of Connecticut. However, until now, it has always been better known as the discoverer of Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas, which has now been declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco and one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world. . His 1948 book on Machu Picchu, “The Lost City of the Incas,” was a bestseller. And in Machu Picchu itself, the mountain trail that leads to the ruins is known as the “Hiram Bingham Road.”
The revelation that Berns was the true discoverer of Machu Picchu (four decades before Bingham “discovered” the site) will be published in the next edition of the magazine «South American Explorer».
