Answers about Peru


I would like to know more about the wonders of Peru, historical places which represent the Incas, lovely city sightseeing, cultural festivals where Peruvian dances and music like Huayno and Marniera are played. Any suggestions?

Hi Gianmaria.
Peru is a country where many cultures melted along the history. The last was the Inca Empire. There are many historical places...each region has its own history and its own cultural legacy.
Some of the main destinations and important sites are:
Lima (the capital), Arequipa (Colca Valley & Canyon), Chiclayo (the Lord of Sipan), Cusco (Machu Picchu) Iquitos (the Amazon Rainforest), Puno (Lake Titicaca), Trujillo (Chan Chan), and much more.
