Machu Picchu is an Inca site in the Andes Mountains of Peru. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and has been called one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
Hiram Bingham is credited with discovering Machu Picchu, but there were people living there at the time of his "discovery".
The better-known photos of Machu Picchu are taken from closer to the Intiwatana with Wayna Picchu in the background. Taken from one of the lower terraces near the entrance area, this panorama shows many details of Machu Picchu as well as the surrounding mountains.
630 separate 8MP images went into this panorama.
