A country full of contrasts, Peru offers a choice of mystical destinations, from Lima on the Pacific coastline with its remarkable Spanish-style architecture to the Colca Canyon, the deepest in the world. Let’s not forget Lake Titicaca, with its enchanting floating islands and the mountaintop site of Machu Picchu, one of the most important archaeological sites in the world – and one of the most famous tourist attractions in Peru.
Peru’s capital, Lima, is the main gateway to the country. It was founded in the 16th century on the site of an important Inca religious centre, whose history is featured in the architecture and museums in the old part of the city.
