Best Culture & History in Peru
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Peru team
With more than 10,000 years of history, Peru has great multicultural wealth and traditions; It has a delicious and laureate cuisine; it has imposing archaeological complexes; 12 Unesco world heritage sites, and vast nature reserves. Without a doubt, it is one of the most varied countries in the world.
In ancient Peru, the earth was venerated as a source of life, this by relying exclusively on what she produced and provided for them. The link between the Andean man and the earth is so close that ancestral rites are performed to ensure a good harvest and give thanks to Mother Earth.
Peru is an amazing country in all aspects. In addition to having an amazing story and sites that seem out of fairy tales, it prides itself on having an impressive cuisine, varied and full of color and flavors. And if this were not enough, its division in coast, mountains, and jungle offers us a cultural variety that makes it a country full of nuances and charms that always surprise and fall in love.
