Surface Area
With an area of 1,285,215 square km, Peru is the third-largest country in South America after Brazil and Argentina, ranking it amongst the world's 20 largest nations.

Population
27.000.000 inhabitants.
- Urban: 72,3 %
- Rural: 27,7 %

Peru is a nation of mixed ethnic origins. Throughout its history, Peru has been the meeting ground for different nations and cultures. The indigenous population was joined 500 years ago by the Spaniards.
As a result of this encounter, and later enriched by the migration of African blacks, Asians and Europeans, Peruvian man emerged as the representative of a nation whose rich ethnic mix is one of its leading characteristics.

Language
- Spanish: 80,3%
- Quechua: 16,2%
- Other languages: 3,0%
- Foreign languages: 0,2%

Currency
The official currency in Peru is the Nuevo Sol (S/.), which is divided into 100 centimos. The currency includes coins for 5, 10, 20 and 50 centimos and 1, 2 and 5 sol coins. There are bills in the denomination of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 Nuevos Soles.

Government
Peru is a democratic republic. The president and members of Congress are elected every five years by universal suffrage. The current constitutional president of Peru is Alan Garcia Pérez (2006-2011).

Evangelical: 6,73%
Other religions: 2,56%
Any Religion: 1.65%

Geography
Peru is divided into three regions: the coast, the highlands and the jungle.
Although this simple division is a fair portrait of Peru's geography, the reality is much richer and far more complex: in Peru, nature appears to have taken on particular characteristics which have turned its mountains, plains, jungles and valleys into unique habitats.
An extraordinary variety of eco-systems shelters a wide diversity of animals and plants.


FACTS ABOUT PERU

Heir to ancient cultures and a rich colonial tradition, Perú is a magical spot which involves one of the richest biodiversities of Earth, and is a melting pot of different cultures who together are forging the promise of a better future.

Archaeological heritage
Ten thousand years of history are lived through 180 museums and historical places.

Nature and Landscapes
- As home to 84 of the 104 life zones that exist on our plant makes Peru a privileged destination for nature lovers.
- Close to 20% of the worlds birds and 10% of the world's reptiles live here.
- Peru has converted 13% of its territory into Protected Natural Areas.

Festivities and Traditions
Peru is a country that sings and dances in joy and sadness with color and a great deal of paraphernalia. Peruvians celebrate some 3,000 festivals all over the country.

Incomparable cuisine
Over 40,000 restaurants across the country reflect the diversity of a nation that has mixed its native traditions with the cuisines of Europe, Arabia, China, Africa and Japan. The result: unique flavours that make Peruvian cuisine one of the best and most varied in the world.

Recipes such as cebiche (raw fish marinated in lemon juice), pachamanca (meat and vegetables cooked underground), chupe de camarones (shrimp soup), ají de gallina (spicy chicken) and juanes (cornmash pastries) are just a few of the mouth-watering dishes served up in Peru.

Peru was gifted with lands and seas of divine abundance and we, the Peruvians, for centuries now, have given thanks for this gift by cooking, eating, and creating just as the gods do.

While Peru inevitably evokes images of Machu Picchu and the Inca empire, the country is also riddled with archaeological sites which are a legacy of even more ancient times, when great civilizations bequeathed a legacy of their art, customs and rituals, their wisdom and skills.

The Inca empire was a recent arrival during the process of cultural development in the Andes during the pre-Hispanic era, and the history of the Incas barely accounts for a century within the 20,000 years of human occupation of Peruvian territory.

Much earlier than the Incas and while civilizations like the Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Indian, and Chinese (3000 and 2000 B.C.) flourished, the city of Caral, located north of the city of Lima-Peru, was built; this was the first American expression of a Pre-Ceramic urban settlement with monumental architecture in an area greater than 10 hectares. Later, in the northern highlands, the Chavin (800 – 200 B.C.) achieved significant advances in architecture, engineering, and agriculture.

The Chavín civilization (1500-400 BC) achieved considerable prowess in architecture, engineering and agriculture in the northern highlands. Along the north coast, the Moche civilization (200 BC-700 AD) is famous for its realistic pottery (portraits carved into pots and gourds) and its pyramid-shaped temples. The same area was later controlled by the Chimú kingdom (900-1450 AD), who built Chan Chan, an immense mud-brick citadel featuring 12-meter-high walls and superb architectural work.

To the south, the Nazca people (200 BC-900 AD) etched an impressive series of figures etched into the desert floor known as the Nazca Lines, while graves belonging to the Paracas culture (800 BC-600 AD) have unearthed superb weavings which point to the magical and religious vision that governed the lives of this ancient civilization.

Centuries later, the Incas (1300-1500 AD) were to make Cusco the center of their empire, building major constructions such as Sacsayhuaman, Pisac and Koricancha. It is here that myth and history merge, where the Inca roads, the towns, people and traditions are a living example of the Andean spirit, sacred and monumental.

The opening ceremony, held on 2 October, was chaired by the Peruvian Ambassador to the United States Harold Forsyth, who expressed his satisfaction and appreciation to the National Geographic Society and the Irving Arts Center for the organization.

The diplomat highlighted that the long-standing relationship between the National Geographic and Peru has helped the world recognize the respect for the diversity of our cultural heritage.

He went on to add that this is the first time in decades that an exhibit of Peruvian archaeological treasures is shown in the United States.

“Peruvian Gold: Ancient Treasures Unearthed”, that runs until December 31, includes a remarkable collection of ancient gold and silver artifacts excavated from Peru’s legendary royal tombs.

It is presented in partnership with the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C. and showcases extraordinary objects from Peru’s pre-Inca heritage, including gold ceremonial and funerary masks, textiles, ceremonial ornaments, ceramics and jewelry.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is El Tocado, the largest and most ornate pre-Columbian headdress ever discovered. The extraordinary gold headdress dates from the Middle Sican period (A.D. 900-1100).

In addition, the display is complemented by a full schedule of free events, including a series of films, lectures, hands-on art sessions, tours and gallery talks.

Guest curated by National Geographic’s Archaeology Fellow Dr. Fredrik Hiebert, “Peruvian Gold” features iconic artifacts on loan from three Peruvian institutions: Sican National Museum, Larco Museum and Museum of the Central Reserve Bank of Peru.

It should be noted Irving is the only location outside of Washington D.C. to host Peruvian Gold.

Important archaeological remains found in Incan center

Lima, Oct. 08. Peru’s Ministry of Culture informed that archaeologists have recently discovered important remains in Inca administrative center of Hatun Xauxa, located south of Jauja in Junin region.

This discovery was made possible thanks to a research that the Ministry of Culture conducted through a project involving the Xauxa–Pachacamac of the Qhapaq Ñan stretch, and this as part of an archaeological research aimed at enhancing the said site.

The buried treasure includes the so called “well of liquid offerings” found in the sacred throne or “ushnu,” where it is believed liquor and other products were poured by the Incas as part of ceremonial activities.

In addition, experts claimed to have found a human burial site -which would be an offering denoting the founding of the site- as well as painted walls believed to date back to the ancient city’s first period of construction.

According to the ministry, this finding highlights the need to reassess the religious importance and the complex nature of activities undertaken in the ushnu of Hatun Xauxa. It reflects, in turn, the continuing transformation its architecture has experienced.

Since colonial times, some testimonies -such as that found in the Huarochiri Quechua manuscript- have suggested that Hatun Xauxa would have been a ceremonial center where deities -such as Macahuisa, son of Pariacaca- were worshiped.

 

U.S. magazine labels Peru as future of gastronomy

Lima, Sep. 30. An article by Condé Nast Traveler, leading American magazine specializing in tourism and leisure, suggested that the “future of gastronomy is being cooked up in Peru.”

Kevib West, the article’s writer, begins by highlighting how blessed the country is with a mind-blowingly fertile ecosystem where way more than 3,000 varieties of potatoes can be found. He also noted Lima is emerging as a new global culinary epicenter.

“Many critics have proposed that Peru is the next Scandinavia—a region that has gestated a new generation of great chefs dedicated to radical localism,” he pointed out.

West explains that Peruvian chefs are experimenting with the equally archaic grains kiwicha and can~ihua, exploring such a patrimony as if it were a virgin continent newly opened for the world to taste, a collective quest sometimes called Nuevo Andino or just Modern Peruvian.

This culinary experiment is a uniquely 21st-century movement—a kind of Wiki-cuisine with contributions from the huariques and the gastronomic temples, from Peru’s ancestral Moche culture and the global culinary avant-garde.

In this regard, he said molecular gastronomy is only the most recent foreign influence to stretch Peru’s incredibly elastic culinary imagination and cites as an example of this Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez’s Central restaurant in Lima, which was named the top eatery in Latin America.

In the article, Peruvian famous chef Gastón Acurio is described as “the emperor of New Andean cuisine”, since he is leading a reverse conquest of the Peruvian table.

 

Peru’s Chavin de Huantar among 5 overlooked world treasures

Lima, Sep. 29. Famous world explorers Tony Wheeler and Vince Michael listed Chavin de Huantar, a pre-Columbian archaeological site located in Huari province in Ancash region, as one of the five hidden gems to explore and check off your bucket list.

According to an article by CNN writer Katia Hetter, the afore-mentioned explorers encourage tourists to visit not only Lima and Machu Picchu, but also the Chavin de Huantar site while in Peru.

Even though they refer to Machu Picchu as the most stunning structure standing from the Inca empire, Wheeler and Michael claim Chavin de Huantar is cradle of one of the oldest cultures in Peru.

"The monumental center of Chavin itself was clearly a very significant place, and its elaborate architecture places it among the most impressive temples of its time, anywhere in the world," Michael said.

The Chavin archaeological site, located about 250 kilometers (155 miles) north of Lima, seems to have been a religious and ceremonial pilgrimage center for the pre-Columbian Andean religious world.

The explorer assured this site represents one of the earliest manifestations of Shamanism, where power was legitimized through a belief in the small elite having a divine connection.

"It is distinguished by a highly organized platform-mound-and-plaza architecture that includes precocious use of finely cut and worked stone facades as well as an intricate, graphic, baroque and instantly recognizable 'art' style executed in stone, pottery, bone, shell and gold," he added.

The other four overlooked world treasures listed in the article include Pingyao Ancient City in China, Catalhoyuk in Turkey, Hampi in India and Banteay Chhmar in Cambodia.
