Handpicked by a Peru Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Cultural things to do in Peru'.

When visiting Peru, there are countless cultural experiences to explore that will give you a deeper understanding of this diverse and vibrant country.

One of the must-see cultural attractions in Peru is the ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers breathtaking views and insights into the history of the Inca civilization.

Another iconic cultural site is the city of Cusco, once the capital of the Inca Empire and now a bustling hub of indigenous Andean culture mixed with Spanish colonial architecture.

Peru is also home to a rich culinary tradition, with dishes like ceviche, lomo saltado, and causa rellena showcasing the country's diverse flavors and influences.

For a taste of traditional Peruvian music and dance, make sure to catch a performance of the colorful and energetic Marinera, or the hauntingly beautiful sounds of Andean pan flutes.

If you're interested in textiles, visit the city of Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca, where you can see local artisans weaving intricate patterns using techniques passed down through generations.

Whether you're wandering through the ancient streets of Lima's historic center, exploring the mysterious Nazca Lines, or immersing yourself in the mystical ruins of the Sacred Valley, Peru offers a wealth of cultural activities for travelers of all interests.
