Peru’s Machu Picchu bags World’s Leading Tourist Attraction award

Published on : Tuesday, December 11, 2018

For the second time in a row, Peru’s Machu Picchu has won the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction award this year at World Travel Awards (WTA) Grand Final Gala Ceremony, Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru) revealed.

 

The award ceremony took place in Lisbon, Portugal, unveiling the globe’s finest travel brands. During the event, the Inca country was awarded two other accolades: World’s Leading Culinary Destination —for the seventh time— and World’s Leading Cultural Destination.

 

Back in September, WTA announced South America’s 2018 winners. On that occasion, Peru won four awards: Leading Tourist Attraction, Leading Culinary Destination, Leading Cultural Destination, and Leading Tourist Board.

 

Machu Picchu was declared a Peruvian Historic Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. In 2007, Machu Picchu was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in a worldwide Internet poll.

 

Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca citadel, located in the Eastern Cordillera of southern Peru, on a mountain ridge 2,430 metres above sea level.
