Machu Picchu (from the Quechua machu, old, and picchu, mountain, meaning “old mountain”), is the contemporary name that is given to a llaqta (ancient Inca Andean town) of stone built during the XV century and the rock base that joints the Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu mountains on the west side of the central Andes, south of Peru. Its original name may have been Picchu or Picho.
