Archeology

While Peru inevitably evokes images of Machu Picchu and the Inca empire, the country is also riddled with archaeological sites which are a legacy of even more ancient times, when great civilizations bequeathed a legacy of their art, customs and rituals, their wisdom and skills.

Heritage Cities

When one thinks of Peru, the first thing that springs to mind is the wealth of its age‑old cultures and the legendary Inca empire. More than four hundred years have gone by, four centuries bringing together the pre‑Hispanic legends with the Western raison d'ętre. That era has left superb art and architecture in monuments which are a synthesis of the spirituality, imagination and creativity of Peruvians.

Popular Festivities

Peru celebrates some 3,000 festivals a year. These religious festivals occur alongside pagan celebrations dating back to ancestral myths in native communities in the jungle, as well as dozens of festivals created over the following centuries. Peru's festivals form a radiant rainbow, whose colors blend with sounds, textures and a vigorous theatrical concept aimed at reinventing history and producing a celebratory synthesis of man and the earth goddess, the Pachamama.

Experimental Tourism

On the Titicaca Islands (Puno) and Cuzco's Sacred Valley communities, visitors participate in agricultural works that still use successful Inca irrigation and farming techniques such as terracing, besides participating in textile crafts and religious expressions. In Porcón (Cajamarca) and the Austro‑German colonies of Pozuzo, Oxapampa and Villa Rica (Pasco), it is also very interesting to share forestry and farm working experiences.

Adventure
