Machu Picchu, Peru

Action Lee was photographed by Lucy Morgan overlooking Machu Picchu - the pre-Columbian Inca site located 2,430 metres (8,000 ft) above sea level.

Often referred to as "The Lost City of the Incas", Machu Picchu is one of the most familiar symbols of the Inca Empire.

Machu Picchu was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. Since it was not plundered by the Spanish when they conquered the Incas, it is especially important as a cultural site and is considered a sacred place.
