Also, explore the cities of Lima and Cusco, where you will discover a great testament to the history of the country.
Lima: Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Peruvian capital combines history with modernity. In its historical centre, colonial architectural structures stand right next to the Pacific Ocean, all seeped in a deeply bohemian atmosphere
Cusco: The ancient Inca capital is a unique blend of pre – Columbian past and Spanish architecture. Its temples, squares and streets are surrounded by hills that amazing places like Sacsayhuamán and Quenqo, Puca Pucará and Tambomachay.
Machu Picchu: The ‘lost city of the Incas’ draws thousands of people to Peru each year. Hidden among the vegetation, this mountain-top citadel, built in complete harmony with the landscape, hosts a wealth of rooms, temples, bridges and religious sites that offer visitors a chance to get closer to Peru’s fascinating past.
Vinicunca: Around 100 km southeast of Cusco, rests one of the most beautiful wonders of nature: the 7-Colour Mountain. This place, also known as the Rainbow Mountain, has an altitude of 5,200 metres above sea level. The 7-colour Mountain is a natural wonder that enchants visitors from all over the world. The accumulation of minerals during hundreds of thousands of years give it its particular and magical colouration.
