Lima

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!

Yungay

Yungay, also known as "New Yungay" is the city located on the heart of Callejón de Huaylas in the Peruvian mountain range, at 9 mi (15 km) from the famous peak of Huascarán. Yungay is the ideal place for the archaeological and ecological tourism due to the natural and historical wealth of its environment. The main destination on the outskirts of the city is the already mentioned peak of Huascarán, which is considered one of the highest mountains of the world. Close to the peak are placed the Llanganuco lagoons, at 15 mi (25 km) from the city. Waters are characterized for the turquoise color and shores surrounded by the queñual woods. The Guitarreros cavern is another place you can visit outside the city, where there are remains and proofs of the first inhabitants and farmers of Peru, that date from the 12.500 B.C. Back to the city you can go to the Cemetery de Yungay, a place that commemorates the victims of the earthquake of 1970, one of the biggest natural disasters occurred in the American continent. In this cemetery we can find the statue of the Cristo Redentor of Yungay, built on the 60s. During your visit don't you miss the "pachamanca", the fried trout, "the picante de cuy" (guinea pig) and the chocho salad, traditional dishes of the regional gastronomy that you can accompany with a sweet and sour "chicha de jora", the most refreshing and representative drink of the region celebrations.
