About Chiclayo

The name of the city comes from Chidayep and Chiclayoc, words in mochica language which mean “green that hangs”. It was the place where the culture mochica was born in the period of 0-600 B.C. Its foundation took place in 1560, during the colonial period, as a rural house; this lasted until the republic period, when the city started to grow due to its commercial importance and privileged location. Today we can appreciate on the outskirts and museums the legacy of a large culture moche, which dominated the valley centuries before. Declared the “capital of the friendship” for its hospitality, charm and good disposition of the residents, Chiclayo is the place where every traveller who likes history, good food and beaches with a good climate can’t miss.

Travel to Lima

"The City of Kings", as Lima is known, was founded in 1535 by Francisco Pizarro and became the center of Spanish power in Peru, during the colonial period.The urban planning of Lima is one of the colonial models in South America. Lima is known for its social, economical and cultural growth and stands out as the cultural center of Latin America; besides that, Lima is the home of San Marcos National University, the most ancient from America, founded in 1551.Lima is famous for being the viceroyalty capital of Peru and one of the cities most important of South America in the spanish regime period; after its independance in 1821 the city became the republic's capital. Before this period, the Baroque and Neoclassical style took the power on the streets, impregnating those architectural styles in the main constructions. The capital counts a high variety of tourist attractions that combine history and modernity, as you can see on the Historical Center. Another strong point of Lima is the food, there are many restaurants from the 3 Peruvian regions where you can live a complete gastronomical experience, given that the population is multicultural and mostly migrant. Live Peru from one of its corners, and enjoy tasting the culture that Peru offers you!

About Lima

The city of Lima is the capital of Peru and has 30% of the total peruvian population, which makes it the most populated city in the entire country. During the pre-Hispanic times, this space was occupied by the Maranga culture and the Lima culture, which would later be conquered by the Wari Empire. From this period, important constructions were built such as Mateo Salado, Pucllana and Huallamarca. During the Viceroyalty era, constructions very similar to Spanish architecture were made, such is the case of the Plaza de Armas, whose position was chose personally by the Spanish Francisco Pizarro. It was also here that it was chosen as capital because its location was very favorable for trade: its distance from the sea was good to favor trade but not enough to suffer pirate attacks.
