But its heart remains in its homeland of Peru. Head here today and the remnants of its past lie at its fore, from the Quecha-speaking locals of Cusco to the stalwart ancient wonder of Machu Picchu.
And while this South American beauty is awash with adventure sports, it’s also a formidable centre of Inca culture and history. Here’s our guide to the best Inca sites in Peru…
