Background Info Peru

Peruvian architecture has two different styles: Spanish and Inca. Upon arrival in Peru, you will be amazed by the very typical Spanish architecture of the splendid buildings around the Plaza de Armas, Lima’s most prominent square. The large cathedral is worth a visit. The architecture in the central square of Cuzco also makes you feel like you are in Spain. One of this tour’s highlights is a daytrip from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu where you will visit the ruins of an ancient Inca city. Notice the deliberate inclination of the walls to make them earthquake-proof. Also, you will see the ancient city’s different sections, each one of them with different types of buildings. In the outer layers lived the ‘common’ folk, in the centre of town the high priests.
