MENTOR INTERNATIONAL EXPLORERS . PERU 2012. Where in the World is Peru.
Peruvian territory was home to the Norte Chio civilization, one of the oldest in the world, and to the Inca Empire, the largest state in Pre-Columbian America.
The Spanish Empire conquered the region in the 1532 century along with most of its South American colonies. It was the South American capital of Trade and culture for over a hundred years.
Lima is Peru's largest city and its capital. Founded in 1535 by Francisco Pizarro, Lima was used as the headquarters of the
Spanish conquistadors, Lima has everthing… from shopping and restaurants, to cathedrals to beaches
What a gloriously
old modern city!
Cusco was the site of the historic capital of the Incas. The Killke culture constructed the fortress about 1100.
The Inca later expanded and occupied the complex in the 13th century and after.
Today the city shows off modern glory
Often referred to as "The Lost City of the Incas“ though only 80 km from Cuzco, it is perhaps the most familiar icon of that civilization.
The Incas started building the "estate" around AD 1400 but abandoned it as an official site for
the Inca rulers a century later at the time of the Spanish Conquest
