Fact of the Day: Machu Picchu

While Spain had essentially forced their culture, religion, and language on most of Mexico, Latin America and South America and stole their lands and wealth, they had failed to find Machu Picchu. As a result the world didn't know it existed until 1911. Luckily, the Spanish didn't find it as they would often plunder and destroy sites like that.
