About Ica

In the Ica territory flowered 2 of the most important cultures that lived in this part of the continent. The Paracas culture (600 B. C. - 100 A.D.) and the Naza culture (100 A.D. - 800 A.D.) were the first civilizations of Ica, followed by the Chincha culture (800 A.D. - 1476 A.D.), but there are not many registers of the last one. With the expansion of the Incan Empire, the end of the... Chincha culture would arrive, consolidating as new power of the territory of Ica until the arrival of the Spanish and the subsequent conquest. After the foundation by the Spanish, Ica would become a commercial region, characterized by its textile and winemaking industries, which saw its origin in 1540, when Nicolás de Ribera el Viejo produced the first eau-de-vie with the Ica raisins.

Winter is the best period to visit Ica, since it's a desert climate and in summer the heat is stiffling. Another option is to travel in March (ending the summer) to participate in the Festival de la Vendimia, where the grape and the wine are the protagonists.

The things to do in Ica

Ica is a warm city on the south of Lima, where you will have the chance of visiting an interesting variety of places for all the pleasures. There are museums of the Paracas and Nazca cultures, who settled down the region hundreds of years ago. In those museums you’ll see skulls that show the technique of skull trepanation, famous technique used by the Paracas for ma...king surgical operations on the head, very advanced for the period. You can also visit the Huacachina lagoon, which is at 10 minutes from Ica. It’s an oasis with a pond in the center of the town, where you can take buggies to go through the dunes and make sandboard. Besides, if the weather allows it, you can board on a boat to make a romantic tour through the lagoon
