Machu Picchu Fine Grained White Granite Which Gleams like Marble - Peru


A wall which abuts on the semicircular tower at Machu Picchu is notable for the beautiful symmetry of the niches in it, those hall marks of the Inca builders; between each niche is a projecting squared knob of stone. The wall itself is built of specially selected white granite of such fine grain that it gleams like marble.
