THE EXPLORER: ENTRY SEVEN
The Last refugee of the Inca Empire
Hiram Bingham, the American explorer took an expedition into the Peruvian Andes in 1911 in search of the legendary Lost City of the Inca.
His research led him to believe the city he searched for was called Vilcabamba, ‘The Plain of the Sun’.
The journal of a Spanish Friar reports differently. The journal claims the last refuge of the Inca people was not Vilcabamba as Hiram believed, but a city called Vitcos.
