Floating Stairs in Peru

Stairs Inca Peru

The Incas, masterful builders and architects, were fascinated by stairs. Their temples looked like giant staircases and they farmed on an elaborate terrace system. They invented ‘floating stairs’ enabling them to climb the steep mountain walls.  Imagine the Inca people swiftly and nimbly moving up or down on slabs they had inserted into the wall.  No handrail, of course.
