The history of Peru is vast and ancient, making it one of the most amazing destinations in the whole continent with a history of over ten thousand years that has made Peru a country rich in cultural heritage, traditions and mysticism.
The Inca Empire was so large that it reached the current countries of Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina, and had Cuzco (meaning “navel of the world” in Quechua) as its capital city. The Empire came to an end with the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in 1532, who established the vice royalty of Peru, lasting for almost 300 years until 1821 when Peru got its independence, giving birth to the Republican era.
