The Incas were culture and empire in South America , which fell to the conquest of the New World by the Spaniards . The capital was Cuzco in Peru today . In an area of Ecuador to Chile and Argentina lived over 200 nations !

The most important findings are the archaeological sites Cusco , Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca in .The name ” Inca ” comes from the nation ” Inca ” and interpreted to be the name of the god Helios (” Edie ” ) . Later , the same name they gave to the people who were subjugated to the Inca . The Inca empire beginning about 1200 BC and reaches up to the 15th century , when catalyzed by the Spaniards .

The person of the king was considered sacred , since the name ” Inca ” , called him their religious leader , as we said , the sun . The Incas considered the son of the Sun and was forced to marry his older sister ( if he had , the less ) , to ensure the purity of the royal race ! Something and was allowed , but dictated by their religion , which was the worship of the Sun .

The crown prince was army chief .


The music of the Incas had a high-pitched sound and characterized  extensive instrumentation . They made high quality instruments , such as recorders , trumpets, whistles and drums !
