Machu Picchu is the site of a pre-Columbian (1462AD) Inca ruin, often referred to as "The Lost City of the Incas." It is situated on a mountain ridge 8000 feet above the Urubamba Valley in Peru. American historian Hiram Bingham rediscovered the site and brought it to the attention of the world in 1911. Machu Picchu is now considered one the seven wonders of the modern world and is a highly visited tourist destination.
Procession to Machu Picchu is written in a bolero style and brings to life visions of the Incas as they marched to the summit over 500 years ago.
