Cajamarca is the most important city of the North mountain range of Peru and it's known as "the capital of the Peruvian carnival" for having one of the biggest carnival of the country. The city has an architectural and archeological wealth that dates from the colonial and the conquest periods. It was the scene of the capture of the last inca, Atahualpa, by the spanish people, and that was a key episode in Peru's History, because it marked the end of the Inca's Empire.
