PERU

History, Inca Ruins, handcrafts & great food

There is an incredible amount of interesting history in Peru. Whether you’re visiting a museum, wandering around a town or village, or hiking to one of the hidden Inca ruins, you will always be surrounded by the strong presence of history and cultural influences. The ancient Inca ruins are considered to be some of the most beautiful and mysterious sites in the world.  Among the most impressive are the ruins at the Sacred Valley and the famous Machu Picchu.

Many Peruvians still have a direct link with their Inca ancestors, proudly conserving the Quechua culture making it an interesting and enjoyable experience meeting them. Same time they make some of the most famous handcrafts you’ll find anywhere. You can see women weaving those exquisite, colorful patterns that make up a decorative wall carpet, scarf, jumper, or anything in between. Other great artisanal crafts are found in the form of instruments, wood carvings, canvas paintings, jewelry, and more. Not only do these make great souvenirs and travel mementos, but by buying them you are helping to support their traditions and are giving the opportunity of decent living to a family.

It’s said that Peru has one of the best cuisines in America. Peru not only holds a variety of ethnic mixes, but also a climatic variety of 28 individual climates. This mixing of cultures and climates has created a varied cuisine across the country. For any foodie this place is heaven.
