Upon arrival transfer to Machupicchu citadel by bus, it is also called “The lost City of the Incas”. It was planned and constructed in two distinct areas. One of them being the agricultural formed by the cultivation terraces or platforms and located in the precipitous hillside part of the mountain, and the urban area where MachuPicchu`s inhabitants lived. On the top part there is a line that separates the agricultural and urban areas. In the urban sector you can observe two very well defined civil engineering works. One is the residential neighbourhoods and the other the canal system. Both constructions did not reach the same perfection in their finishing of the buildings of the Sacred Valley (temples, mausoleums, squares, real houses). Here it is very common to see the use of the trapezoidal window and of niches where they deposited their idols as well as the prevalence of the rectangular constructions of a single floor.
