We at Rebecca Adventure Travel find that Peru is one of the most beautiful countries in South-America and absolutely worth traveling to. Explore the beautiful parts of Peru; go to the emperor city Cuzco, situated in the Peruvian Andes and it is the former capital of the Inca empire. In the 16th century Cuzco was conquered by the Spanish, which nowadays makes this city a nice mix between Inca ruins and colonial buildings. One of Cuzco’s many highlights is the Plaza de Armas, where you can also find Cuzco’s Cathedral.
And you can’t go to Peru without seeing the spectacular Machu Picchu, also known as the Lost City of the Incas, was built in the 15th century, but was only rediscovered in 1911 by the American professor Bingham. This sacred city is situated at approximately 2400 meters (7875 ft) above sea level and it is about 130 kilometers (80 mi) from Cuzco. Since 1983 Machu Picchu is a UNESCO world heritage site and in 2007 it was elected one of the ‘new 7 world wonders’.
