Peru Empire of Hidden Treasures the Legacy
Peru is a unique and wonderful country which owns an exuberant biodiversity and is the scene of an extraordinary culture. The city of Cusco is considered the oldest living city in America, with an approximate age of 3,000 years. Cusco was the site of the historic capital of the Inca Empire and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1983 by UNESCO. Machu Picchu, a fantastic inca citadel lost to the world until its rediscovery in the early 20th century, with its emerald terraces backed by steep peaks, and Andean ridges echoing on the horizon, the sight simply surpasses the imagination. The Sacred Valley, located between Cusco and Machu Picchu, this picturesque destination is an ideal base for exploring the area´s famed markets and historic structures. Floating Islands of Lake Titicaca, less a lake than a highland ocean, none more surreal than the floating islands crafted entirely of tightly woven totora reeds.
