Machu Picchu sometimes called the "Lost City of the Incas" is a well-preserved pre-Columbian Inca ruin located above the Urubamba Valley in Peru. The famous destination was an astronomical observatory. Its sacred Intihuatana stone accurately indicates the two equinoxes (the "edge" between night and day). Twice a year, the sun sits directly over the stone creating no shadow. This destination is also the inspiration for the village of the Disney movie Emperor’s New Groove.
