Tour to Machu Picchu 1 day with Mountain by Train – The city of Machu Picchu was founded in the middle of the XV century by Pachacutec, the first Inca emperor and could be populated by between 300 and 1,000 inhabitants composed by the “upper class” Inca and settlers of all parts of the empire who worked as farmers. During the time of the Inca empire, the city was considered as a religious and cultural center and a rich city surrounded by hundreds of agricultural complexes that Machu Picchu depended on to feed its populous citizenship perfectly communicated with the rest of the Inca empire thanks to its magnificent road networks.
After the death of Pachacútec in 1493, great protector and precursor of the city, Machu Picchu lost its importance in favor of Ollantaytambo, closer and better communicated with Cuzco, which caused that it was forgotten (not unknown) by the Spaniards during the conquest and occupation and to remain almost uninhabited and impoverished Machupicchu.
There are several uncontested legends about the resistance of the Incas Vilcabamba or about the evangelization of the Spanish church or mention of magnificent buildings at some point in the mountains by Spanish soldiers, but the truth is that the history of Machu Picchu is not only documented, except in administrative and legal acts of the conquerors. Until its “rediscovery” in 1911, the city Machupicchu, entropy in its environment has remained in oblivion only being known for the agricultural interest of the lands that surround it to Machu Picchu.
