Aguas Calientes Travel Guide

History

Settled by a few farm families in 1901, the tiny settlement was transformed into a busy railway worker's camp called Makinachayuq (Quechua makina (a borrowing from Spanish máquina) machine / locomotive, train, -cha, -yuq suffixes, "the one with a little machine, locomotive or train", also Maquinachayoq) during the construction of the railroad through there in the late 1920s. The town was the central hub for worker lodging and their equipment up until the railway was finished in 1931.
