We Visit Peru
     

     Some of Peru’s famous landmarks include the ruins of “lost cities” that were thriving before the Europeans arrived. The Inca are the most well-known of Peru’s indigenous people who lived long ago but there were other advanced civilizations, too. A traveler can see the Moche pyramids and the Nazca lines, both proof that the Inca weren’t always in charge. The geography of Peru with its mountains, deserts, and jungles allowed many different cultures to develop in isolation from others. Mixing of the cultures began when the Inca moved conquered tribes to different parts of their kingdoms. After Spain conquered Peru, people came from all over the world seeking gold . This mixture of cultures created the vibrant Peruvian culture of today.
