1.Machu Picchu, one of the wonders of the world
The Huffpost confirms that it is in every list of places you need to visit in Peru, South America and the world, and they are all right.
“The ruins of this ancient Inca city built in the sixteenth century were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983 and are considered a feat of architecture”, the aforementioned website said.
2.Its gastronomy that aspires to be Intangible Heritage of Humanity
Besides the well-known ceviche, Peruvian cuisine goes far beyond. “Some meat dishes like the Lomo Saltado, which is prepared in a wok accompanied by different vegetables, but also desserts”, are some of the things the Huffpost stands out from Peru’s gastronomic scene.
“Among the rich vegetation of the inter-Andean valleys and the eastern cordillera of the Andes, most coffee is produced in Peru, which accounts for 5% of the country’s total exports”, the Huffpost said, which is why they consider that it is another reason to visit Peru.
4.The Huascarán National Park
Throughout its more than 3,400 square kilometers this national park hosts an extensive number of glaciers, lagoons and all kinds of fauna and flora. A natural wealth that makes it a perfect place to visit and admire, but also to take care of.
