Culture & Festivals

Peru has a rich culture and fascinating history: from pre-Columbian times through to the impressive Incan Empire, the colonial era and the modern Peru of today, there is an almost infinite cultural tapestry to explore.

The Peruvian calendar – and particularly the Andes – is measured by a series of colourful festivals, Saints’ days and cultural traditions.
