Choquequirao is known as the “sacred sister” of Machu Picchu due to its structural and architectural similarity to it.Recently, being partially excavated, it has aroused the interest of the Peruvian government to recover the complex even more and turn it into a more accessible alternative to tourists interested in learning more about the Inca culture. In 1834, José María Tejada (prefect of Cusco) travels to the citadel attracted by the legends about treasures in Vilcabamba; Also in 1837, Leonce Angrand mapped the place for the first time, but his maps were also forgotten. It was not until 1909, when archaeologist Hiram Bingham and surveyor Clarence Hay (both Americans) visited Choquequirao and produced a detailed description of the site, that the citadel gained greater attention from archaeologists, the government, and tourists. The first excavations began several decades after Bingham’s visit, around 1970; likewise, in 1986 intensive studies and a site restoration plan were carried out. Currently, it is estimated that only 30% of the complex, which comprises some 1,810 hectares, has been unearthed and put into operation as a tourist area. The completion of the restoration was expected in 2011, taking even longer to study and understand its historical legacy.
