The views of the Andes Mountains bear witness to one of Peru’s vastest ecosystems. However, throughout the national territory the landscape is diversified in seas, deserts, jungles, mountains, moors and glaciers.

2. Main cities of Peru: among the most beautiful in the world


The territory of Cusco is characterized by impressive landscapes among which stand out the Red Valley of Pitumarca, so called because of the color that the mineralization process has given to the rocks or the Seven Colored Mountain of Palcoyo, famous for this fascinating quality and for being home to some of the most representative animal species, such as llamas, alpacas, condors and vizcachas. And for a relaxing experience in the middle of nature, the Thermo-medicinal baths of Lares or the thermal waters of Cocalmayo are not to be missed.

Machu Picchu

It is said that knowing Machu Picchu is reason enough to travel to Peru, because the mysticism of the Inca citadel induces a state of communion with nature and an intuitive knowledge of ancestral America. Besides being one of the main tourist sites in Peru, this ceremonial center was declared a World Heritage Site in 1983 and is on the list of the 10 wonders of the modern world.


Located north of Lima, this sacred city is the oldest in Latin America, since it is estimated that the development of this civilization took place at the same time as Mesopotamia, China, India and Egypt. In addition, in this area there are pyramids around 5,000 years old.


The third most inhabited city in Peru is famous for its cultural, urban and architectural heritage. If you are in this area, you cannot miss the Chan, Huacas del Sol and Huacas de la Luna. The first of them, declared Cultural Patrimony of Humanity.


Also called “White City”, it is another of the tourist places in Peru that cannot be missing in your route. It is the second most important city in the field of industrial production in the country and it is home to the Constitutional Court. Its historic center was declared Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.


The country’s capital is also its best known city, but other factors reaffirm its position among the first stops for travelers. For example, being a city overlooking the sea and having a historic center declared a World Heritage Site. Among the tours you should not miss are a visit to the Plaza de Armas, the City Hall building and the Government Palace.
