Lima La Oroya


Named the "city of kings" when it was founded in 1535 under the hispanic foundation, it was known as Limaq by the local natives, which means "chatty". Lima is famous for being the viceroyalty capital of Peru and one of the cities most important of South America in the spanish regime period; after its independance in 1821 the city became the republic's capital. Before this period, the Baroque and Neoclassical style took the power on the streets, impregnating those architectural styles in the main constructions. The capital counts a high variety of tourist attractions that combine history and modernity, as you can see on the Historical Center. Another strong point of Lima is the food, there are many restaurants from the 3 Peruvian regions where you can live a complete gastronomical experience, given that the population is multicultural and mostly migrant. Live Peru from one of its corners, and enjoy tasting the culture that Peru offers you!

La Oroya

La Oroya is the capital of the peruvian province of Yauli. The origin of the name seems to be the baskets called "oroyas", containers used to transport goods from one side to the other side of the bridge through ropes. Given its geographic location, very strategic, it's a central communication point in Peru and it's also known due to its metallurgical economy. Among the tourist attractions of the area we stand out the Centro Recreacional Ecologico Doe Run Peru, that has an artificial lake and various green areas. You should also visit the Atacayan ruins, with more than 800 years of antiquity. The typical dish that we recommend to taste is fried trouts ("truchas fritas"). In La Oroya the locals celebrate the Festividad de la Santisima Cruz del Calvario, that takes place in Easter, where there are activities as via crucis, an open-air dance, a burning casttle and fireworks. If you visit this city, be prepared for the cold, the town usually presents low temperatures.
