Machu Picchu Inca citadel can now be explored from diverse angles thanks to Google Street View! Google Street View service serves as a tool designed for people to become interested in Peru’s diverse destination options and allow them to get to know our millenary culture thoroughly, Google Peru General Manager Gianfranco Polastri affirmed.
He describes the ability to capture the essence of the ancient site in just a click as a “magic” experience. “Touring around this world’s wonder, thanks to Street View, means opening a new door for people, so they’ll learn more about our culture”, he highlighted.
Street View cameras were placed at heights of up-to 2,490 meters above sea level to capture every detail of the Inca citadel. Polastri indicates that the reason for this advance was to “generate new ways to draw interest and pave ways for tourists to come to Peru and discover it [for themselves].”
Google Maps and Google Earth Google Street View is a technology offered by the Internet giant that features panoramic views from different positions along many world’s streets. It was launched in 2007 in the U.S. and has expanded to include rural areas worldwide.
