One of the great ways to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month is to learn about the widespread cultures of Latin America, whose history is so unquestionably intertwined with ours. And what better way to celebrate than to travel and immerse yourself in culture?
Here are seven Hispanic Heritage sites across the Americas for you to explore:
1. Machu Picchu One of the most famous pre-Hispanic sites in Latin America, Machu Picchu is the 15th century Inca estate believed to have been built for the Inca emperor Pachacuti. Since the site was never discovered by Spanish conquistadores, the buildings remained more or less intact. And thanks to restoration efforts that continue today, tourists can enjoy walking through the original layout.
2. Chichén Itzá Once one of the largest cities in the Mayan civilization, Chichén Itzá is also the second most visited site in Mexico. Known for their exceptional knowledge of mathematics and astronomy, the Mayas’ skill is evident in the architecture of the pyramids, temples, and other buildings at Chichén Itzá.
