A Special Place That is Peru
The American explorer Hiram Bingham was the first to characterise Machu Picchu in Peru as a paradise. This once-forgotten Inca City has today become the archetypal symbol that is Peru. The Gate of the Sun sits at the end of the Inca Trail. One glimpse through the Gate and you are delivered back to the customs upon which the Inca civilisation was built. The country has more historically significant sites than any other nation in South America, and even more are being unearthed all the time.
However, there is a lot more to Peru than just old stones. It is a country that is bigger than both Spain and France combined. Its Amazon Forest is an environmental universe that makes Peru a special and extraordinary place. This wondrous rainforest covers over half the country and it supplies the ideal environment for the best variety of plants and wildlife in the world. Its coastline on the Pacific Ocean is among the richest worldwide, populated with Orca and Humpback whales, dolphins and sea lions.
The Inca culture left its stamp on the architecture, carvings, fabrics and ceramics. Much of this remains alive within the Peruvian language, music, dances and customs. One such custom is the celebration known as Las Fiestas Patrias. This illustrious festival is observed every year on 28 July. This is a day when both State officials and the citizens commemorate Peru’s independence from Spain. It is customary for the route through which the President drives to be showered with flowers and praises by the many well-wishers.
