Lima’s Regional Directorate of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Dircetur) has organized field trips on October 26 and 27 to archaeological sites to celebrate the 18 years of research in the Sacred City of Caral.

"Students will learn about the cultural heritage left by our ancestors," head of Dircetur in Lima, Humberto Barba Mitrani said.

Field trips have been organized on the occasion of 18 years of archaeological research in Caral, added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2009.

The 5000-year-old 626-hectare archaeological site of The Sacred City of Caral-Supe is situated on a dry desert terrace overlooking the green valley of the Supe river.

It dates back to the Late Archaic Period of the Central Andes and is the oldest centre of civilization in the Americas.

Students will learn about the cultural heritage left by our ancestors, head of Dircetur in Lima, Humberto Barba Mitrani said.
