The Peruvian citadel of Machu Picchu will reopen this week after being closed for several weeks to protect it from protests in nearby Cusco.

It’s been announced that the Inca icon will reopen to travellers fully on Wednesday, 15 February, after it was abruptly closed on 21 January. This follows news that train services to Machu Picchu began operating a limited service again last week.

The closure had potentially meant an indefinite period of uncertainty for travellers planning to visit Machu Picchu but now it’s reopening, demand for permits is expected to rise again. A maximum of 2,500 people are allowed to visit the citadel every day.
