Five years ago, the Inca citadel won the title of "Wonder of the World" as part of a contest that was a private initiative of New Open World Corporation (NOWC), created by the Swiss Bernard Weber. On the other hand, the vote was endorsed by the government of Alan Garcia through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Tourism sector.

Following the outcome of the NWOC, Alan Garcia declared by Presidential Decree, on July 7th as the "Day of the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu" to remember the importance of the sanctuary for the world to acknowledge the participation of the Peruvian people in voting and promote tourism.
