Founded by the conquistador Francisco Pizarro on January 18, 1535, it was known as the “City of Kings”, with reference to the Magi, or “King Magicians” as the are known in Spanish, because of the nearness of the Epiphany feast, January 6.

Machu Picchu is the synthesis of Andean cosmic vision, and an homage to nature.
