Summary Machu Picchu is a ruined city that seems to be the work of giants, full of mysteries, unwilling to reveal its secrets. Nevertheless, it has become the symbol of the vanished culture of its architects, the Incas. They were at the height of their power when they were smitten by a hitherto unknown disease due to the insatiable greed for gold which the Europeans introduced to America. This has caused, right up to the present day, the destruction of countless treasures created by the skillful Incan craftsmen, whose empire extended over three hundred thousand square miles. Despite this devastation, numerous buildings, statues and other finds still exist to testify to the creative energy of the Incas and their ancestors.
