Machu Picchu's culture is one of the most diverse in the world, and one of the most interesting. Music is very popular in Machu Picchu, making it home to many different styles, such as: Creole, African, huayno, cumbia, and rock. There can't be a choir without a band, so Machu Picchu also has a large number of instruments, such as: harps, lutes, and guitars. Dances also occur very commonly in Machu Picchu and are quite popular, especially in the many festivals and performances. Machu Pichu's diverse culture also includes a number of fine dishes (4,911 dishes to be exact), drinks, and deserts. Surfing, sailing, fishing, and playing soccer are all popular in Machu Picchu due to its perfect beaches and the Spanish conquest. When the Spanish took over Peru they brought with them their love for soccer, their language (Spanish), and their religion (Catholicism). Once again, the diversity of Machu Picchu makes it one of the most unique on all 7 continents.
