Due to the circumstances in which the discovery by Bingham took place, the importance of Machu Picchu as only gradually recognized. In 1911 there was only e bridle path which led to the nearby outlying areas. a work performed in building a railway line from ' Cuzco began in 1913. This line finally reached the region Machu Picchu, via Aguas Calientes, in 1928, and con‑ to the final destination on its route, Quillabamba. the initial excavations Bingham reached the area by a ad which was cleared in 1909. From this point he bean to explore the region described in his work up until '1915. These were years of successive discoveries. But above all they were months and months of arduous physical work. The neglect and undergrowth which the structures had undergone damaged the area. Furthermore,the climate and the heavy rains erased im‑ testimonies of their former inhabitants. Therefore, it is not surprising that little is known and much remains to be discovered and reconstructed.

The limited testimonies regarding Machu Picchu have led to an endless number of popular stories about the urea. Explorers, travelers, historians and archaeologists ,have also attempted to determine the reasons for what Chas been discovered and to reconstruct a memory which is difficult to determine with certainty. F Nevertheless, in recent years, more specifically in the 1970's, studies and documents, supported by well planned and demanding expeditions, have allowed the historian Edmundo Guillen to finally discard with certainty the statements made by Gingham which considered Machu Picchu as the ,final refuge of the Inca rebels╗. During the years in which they sought refuge from the Spanish siege, the final Inca leaders lived in an area which was much further inland, known presently as Espiritu Pampa. Here the Incas, and with them the Augustinian friars, spent their final days.

What is not known with full accuracy is when the Incas settled in the region. There are indications that the Inca Pachacuti era could have been the period in which the Incas moved towards the Machu Picchu area. The name of Inca Pachacuti is always associated with the Inca presence throughout the Andes. This figure can be dated in the mid or latter part of the 15th century, perhaps approximately forty or fifty years before the Spaniards began to control the Andean region. Machu Picchu is considered to be one of these occupied lands. The valleys near the city of Cuzco, especially the Yucay valley, with the lands of Urubamba and Ollantaytambo, are regions which marked the point of entry for Inca colonization of the summit and the forest. Machu Picchu could have served as an excellent and quite suitable port of entry.
