Description

The Incas, the largest empire in South America, were one of the civilizations of ancient Peru that most cultivated astronomy. They were able to define the constellations, stars, the change of seasons, the agricultural calendar and more. The city of Machu Picchu as well as other ancient citadels such as Pisac or Ollantaytambo are geodesically aligned. Some of its most important buildings such as the ‘Intihuatana’ represented astronomical calendars. Until today it is possible to see these buildings in the visit to Cusco and Machupicchu.
The Incas had a polytheistic religion. Their main gods were elements of the universe such as the sun, the moon, the stars, etc. The Inca emperor was considered the son of the sun. Other Inca gods were the earth, the mountains, the lagoon, the lightning, the river and other elements of nature. For them the world was divided into the world above or of the gods (Hanan pacha), the earthly world or of the living (Kay pacha) and the lower world or of the dead (Uku pacha).
Astronomical observatories were located in temples and on top of mountains. Being close to the sky allowed the Incas to have a better view of the sky and, at the same time, to be close to their main gods: the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains.
For astronomical observation, whether for religious or agricultural purposes, the Incas used sundials (Intihuatana), water mirrors, viewpoints at the top of the mountains and more. Come to discover together the Incas Astronomical knoledge in Machu Picchu!
