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.

Get a taste for Peruvian culture by checking out these articles on everything from Peruvian food and local delicacies to the Qoyllur R’iti pilgrimage, the Virgen del Carmen festival, the stunning Andean weaving tradition, and so much more!
