Machu Picchu is one of the world’s most amazing wonders. Built more than 500 years ago, the hidden city in the Andes Mountains of Peru speaks to the creativity and engineering skills of the Inca. Translated into North American Spanish, this elementary-level introduction, filled with vibrant photos and factual text, examines structures within the city and how they were constructed, from the granite steps to the Temple of the Sun. The city’s significance in history and why it was built are also included. A Wonder Spotlight features the surrounding terraces. Captions, on-page definitions, and an index support young readers.
