It was the Incans that built and inhabited Machu Picchu, and also spoke the indigenous tongue, Quechua. However a lot of the indigineous culture was destroyed after the Spanish conquest of Peru. Today there is a huge gap in the income, lifestyle and socio-economic status of the country’s population.
