The Ministry of Culture clarified that they have not approved an increase to the entrance fee to the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu, declared Cultural Patrimony of Humanity by Unesco in 1981.
Recently, several media published that there would be an increase in the entrance fee to Machu Picchu, but through a statement, the aforementioned ministry clarified that this is not going to take place, either for Peruvians or foreigners.
“No change has been approved to the entrance fee to Machu Picchu”, the statement read.
It was reported that work is being carried out on a comprehensive proposal to generate a plan for reordering and optimizing the tourist visit to the historic sanctuary, so any changes will be communicated in a timely and official manner, according to El Peruano.
