The Pichu Pichu is an extinct volcano, located in the Cordillera Volcanica del Sur del Peru, with a height of 5,542 meters above sea level. The origin of this volcano is explained by several legends. One of them tells that a warrior raped the daughter of the Inca, whom he left pregnant and did not want to accept responsibility, so he was persecuted.
