Explanation:

[STC002125] The magnificent Machu Picchu has stood in the Andes Mountains of Peru since the 15th century, but was brought to the attention of the rest of the world in 1911 thanks to the work of American explorer Hiram Bingham. The estate, which was constructed about the year 1450 and was left uninhabited more than a century later as a result of the Spanish Conquest, is believed to have been constructed for the Incan Emperor Pachacuti. The location of the citadel, which is shielded from danger by the mountains Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu and is situated at an elevation of 2,400 meters (7,970 feet), was deliberately chosen. In 1983, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee selected Machu Picchu as a site worthy of preservation.
