Photographer's Note

This is one perfect example of the Inca Empire architecture in Machu Picchu that was established during the govern period of Pachacutec and continued on until the arrival of the Spanish in this sacred land.
This architecture of the typical agricultural "casitas" was based on the symmetry, the simplicity, the stability and on the natural materials found and taken from nature.
There were five different types of architectonic designs all very common and symmetric.
Extraordinary remains that still standing to remind us of the legendary and incredible culture of the Incas.
Now, only the llamas live there to offer spectacular images with their presence.
