MACHU PICCHU

Machu Picchu is a demonstration of the potential of the humanity. Without the technology we have today, the Inca Empire managed to build an entire city in the middle of the mountain and the jungle of the Amazonas. Who built it and why is still a mistery, like the case of the construction of the Pyramids of Egypt.

The popularity of Machu Picchu as its known today began with Hiram Bingham, who rediscovered the city (another people rediscovered earlier in the last centuries). When he went there for the first time, the city was covered by the jungle. Machu Picchu has public squares, lots of houses (most of them without roofs), and temples for the gods of their culture.

Enjoy!

OLLANTAYTAMBO, PERU



After Machu Picchu, the most important fortress of the Incas is Ollantaytambo, made of terraces and defense towers in the mountains. At this time, we began to see what was very usual in the inca architecture: the stone houses with thatch roofs supported by big wooden beams. In some of the mountains, you may see different kind of shapes, such as animals and human faces (the last picture shows a "face" on the rocks seen from its left side).

From a logistical point of view, Ollantaytambo is the first station of the train who travels to Machu Picchu. So here starts the countdown to the most valuable pictures of the thread: Machu Picchu.

Enjoy!

MEDELLÍN, SPAIN



The name "Medellín" might bring you memories of Colombia to most of you.
Or maybe Mexico, Argentina or Philippines, which is where the other three Medellín´s are located.

In fact, all of these towns were named after this town in Extremadura (Badajoz province), Western Spain.
The Medellín in Spain was not only the birthplace of Hernan Cortes (conqueror of Mexico), but also an Ancient Roman city.
"Medellín" in Spanish comes from the Latin "Metellinum", its original Roman name (given after Quintus Fabius Metellus).


Wikipedia: Doalex



And it keeps an Ancient Roman theatre, the second of Extremadura after the one in Merida.
It´s smaller than those in Merida, Cartagena or Orange (France), but it´s ok anyway.


Wikipedia: Rpmayor



The Roman theatre of Medellín has recently reopened.

The Edificio de los Cinco Pisos from Edzná in the state of Campeche, Mexico.
The site was first occupied in the 5th century BC. The city reached its apogee between the 4th and 10th century AD. And was completely abandoned sometime in the 15th century.

Chwa Nima'ab'aj, known also as Mixco Viejo, Guatemala.

An estimated 10,000 people lived here between 1200 and 1524. Abandoned since then.

Ancient temples of Java:

Candi Prambanan Archaeological site, Hindu temple built in the 9th century, hundreds of its small candi puzzles may never get fully restored:

Nearby Prambanan is Candi Sewu, Buddhist temple which is slightly older than Prambanan, although its main temple is fully restored the smaller candi also facing similar fate as Prambanan:

Candis of Dieng Plateau - site of the first Hindu temples in Java dating back to the 7th century when the first Indian religion reached Java.... there used to be 500 of them scattered but only 8 of them so far are discovered/survived.. due to its significance, the Javanese considered the sites to be sacred.

Gunung Padang Megalithic Site, Mount Padang, West Java, Indonesia

Located at 885 metres above sea level, the site covers a hill in a series of terraces bordered by retaining walls of stone that are accessed by about 400 successive andesite steps rising about 95 metres. It is covered with massive rectangular stones of volcanic origin. The Sundanese people consider the site sacred and believe it was the result of King Siliwangi's attempt to build a palace in one night. The asymmetric Punden Berundak faces northwest, to Mount Gede and was constructed for the purpose of worship. It is located in a position that has been noted for its geomantic and astrological factors. Based on various dating techniques, the site was completed by 5000 BC and quite likely much earlier. There are even preliminary indications that the hill site may itself be an ancient pyramid construction
