Art and Culture
With more than 10,000 years of history, Peru is one of the six cradles of civilization along with Egypt, Mesopotamia, China, India, and Mesoamerica. This great legacy is encapsulated by Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World; the Nasca Lines; and the citadel of Caral, the most ancient in the Americas. Extensive and exhaustive collections—such as that of the Larco Museum—bring together the history that has made this nation the world’s Best Cultural Destination.
We Peruvians are the heirs to hundreds of ancestral traditions and beliefs that are imbued with knowledge of life and reflect upon our relationship with nature, helping us to define our collective identity. Open encounters with the more than 55 first nation cultures of Peru help us to cherish new and diverse ways of living, thinking, and feeling.
From surfing the longest wave in the world to walking along ancient paths at 4,500 meters (14,760 feet) above sea level, multi-day river rafting expeditions, or camping in a glass capsule suspended from a cliff, Peru is an absolute paradise for adventurers and adrenalin lovers keen to venture out of their comfort zone and dare to live new experiences.
Peru is one of the countries with the greatest biodiversity on the planet. It is home to 84 of the Earth’s 117 life zones, including jungle, desert, tundra, lakes, mangroves, highland forests, and seas both warm and icy. It is among the five nations with the most species of birds, amphibians, and mammals, in addition to sheltering at least 25,000 varieties of known plant species. Peru is a mecca for anyone passionate about nature.
Peru has been recognized as the World’s Best Culinary Destination. The gastronomic creations of chefs like Virgilio Martinez, Pía León, Mitsuharu “Micha” Tsumura, Gastón Acurio, and many others, feature on the lists of all foodies. The combination of techniques from different cultures and Peru’s diverse and fertile lands creates a cuisine like no other.
The richness of our culture and worldview have made Peru one of the spiritual epicenters of the world, where sacred mountains, retreat spaces and ancient temples have become gathering places for wellness gurus. Here, we reconnect with our body, mind and soul through healing ceremonies, mystical rituals, and medicinal plants imbued with the regenerative powers of Mother Earth.
