Peru's capital is Lima, a modern city offering renowned world-class cuisine while still preserving the richness of its history. This fascinating country is home to the ancient capital of the Incan empire, Cuzco and Machu Picchu (UNESCO World Heritage Site), also known as "The Lost City of the Incas", which is perhaps the most familiar icon of the Inca World.
Peru is also known for its ethnic diversity and for having a culture as varied and rich as the climate and geography itself. In addition to its significant archeological heritage, the country's Amerindian and Spanish roots have gradually blended with the influx of European, Asian and African immigrants, marking Peru as singular in the region.
