Home to a mysterious ancient culture, Peru can be considered one of the world’s wonders. In the Middle Ages, the Peruvian territory was the center of the empire of the Inca people – a highly developed Indian tribe, which was able to achieve a highly civilized standard of living in difficult high mountainous climatic conditions. If you decide to go to the mysterious and amazing country of Peru, make a Pery itinerary in advance. Without further ado, here are the top 5 must-visit amazing signs in Peru that will awe-inspire you. 

Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is the ancient Incan ceremonial center in the Andes city, discovered in 1911 by archaeologists. For more than four centuries nothing was known about this place, and the Incas civilization mysteriously disappeared in the fifteenth century. In total, there are about two hundred buildings and stony terraces in this ancient city. One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu is a testament to Incan civilization and one of the most visited Peruvian attractions. When visiting Machu Picchu, it is easy to feel like you are stepping back in time and feeling the energy of ancient Inca civilization. 

Nazca Lines

The Nazca Desert is an amazing place to learn about the ancient pre-Colombia civilization of the Nazca people. This is the place of the mysterious intricate huge lines drawn directly on the surface of the earth. They appeared here, according to historians, in the period from about 100 BC to 800 AD. There is still debate about the origin of these drawings. Some scientists believe they were left by ancient artists, while other scientists believe they are the result of creativity or mysterious messages from aliens. Their mystery makes the Nazca desert one of the most popular tourist attractions in Peru. 

Lake Titicaca

Many mysteries are lurking in the waters of this vast natural body of water. Although Lake Titicaca in Puno is located more than 3800 meters above sea level, it is home to a variety of underwater inhabitants, including sharks. In the early 2000s, the ruins of the ancient city of Wanaku were discovered at the bottom of Titicaca. There are ships on the lake, so you can take a ride on its surface and try to unravel the mysteries of this amazing place. By the way, on the reservoir, you can see the man-made Uros Floating Islands. The Incas believed that Lake Titicaca was home to the Children of the Sun and Moon. It is easy to believe: that this stunningly beautiful lake has a magical atmosphere. 

Arequipa

Arequipa, also known as the White City (“La Ciudad Blanca”), is the second largest and UNESCO-listed Peruvian city. The history of the city dates back to 1540. The buildings in Arequipa are made of white volcanic rocks, in an elegant colonial style. But the Plaza of Arms, the Santa Catalina Monastery, the Cathedral, and Casa del Moal, a stately mansion with a beautiful courtyard inside, deserve special tourist attraction. Bustling Arequipa is even home to several casino venues. This is our tip for passionate gamblers who enjoy playing lightning roulette free game and other casino games. 

Colca Canyon 

Located not far from the city of  Arequipa, The Colca Canyon or Cañon del Colca is the second deepest canyon in the world. The depth of it in some places exceeds 4 kilometers! But Peruvians have adapted to life in this place and on the canyon slopes organized systems for growing various plants.
