Cusco (Cusco region), Mar. 30. Over 21,000 domestic and international visitors toured Peruvian city of Cusco and its archaeological, landscape and religious attractions during the long Holy Week holidays, Cusco Regional Directorate of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Dircetur) reported.

Every day, over 3,000 travelers arrived in this region by road and air; however, the figure would be greater due to the increasing flow of domestic visitors, who took advantage of the long weekend, Dircetur Head Carlos Landauro Castro Cuba told Andina news agency.

Besides visits paid to Machu Picchu Archaeological Park, site also known as the Incan Empire?s top attraction, visitors toured the Sacred Valley of the Incas, South Valley, Historic Center, Sacsayhuaman, Tambomachay and Pucapucara (located a few minutes away from the metropolis).

Visits kicked off during Holy Monday, considered one of the most important religious activities, especially when the "Lord of Earthquakes" goes on procession.
The act usually gathers Cusco's citizens, while tourists fill and overflow Cusco's main square.

Among other activities, processions to the Holy Sepulchre and the re-enactment of Crucifixion also stood out.

Peru General Information

    Peru General Information

    Peru, the largest area in the Andean countries, was the cradle of the most advanced indigenous civilizations and most powerful empire in  South America pre-Columbian cultures. Peru was also the focus of Spanish colonial domination for its first two hundred years of rule. What remained of pre-Columbian America with regard to people, culture, and settlements is perhaps better represented in Peru than in any other country.

    The country has a 2,400 kilometer (1,500 miles) long coast on the Pacific Ocean and bordes Colombia and Ecuador in the North, Brazil and Bolivia on the east, and Chile on the south. It is the only country that borders all the Andean state.

    Language: the official languages of Peru are: Spanish which is used on a 73% of the population; the Quechua or runasimi, spoken for a  24% of peruvians. Some specialists recognise to especific variations of quechua on the national territory : the huáihuash, which is quite popular on the central part of Peru and the huámpuy, spoken by the rest of the country.

    Most of the quechua-speakers are bilingual and have spanish as their second language.

Forum to address new challenges of Peruvian cuisine

Chiclayo, Mar. 26. The National Gastronomy Association (Apega) will hold the forum ‘New Challenges of Peruvian Cuisine’ with the aim of collecting culinary contributions from experts in Chiclayo, ahead of a major international congress.

The event will take place on Tuesday March 29th at Chiclayo Municipality's auditorium, and is scheduled to begin at 11:00. A.M. (Peruvian time). It will see the participation of Apega Vice Chairman Mariano Valderrama. During the gathering, speakers will discuss the following questions: After several years of great success, what does the future hold for our cuisine?  Will it stagnate or, on the contrary, continue? What are its strengths and weaknesses? What steps have to be followed in order to consolidate the achieved leadership?

Apega found it convenient to organize a previous forum in Chiclayo in order to collect contributions from a regional perspective before actually holding the international congress that will address such issues on April 12-13 in Lima.  The forum will start with a presentation by Mariano Valderrama, author of the books "The Kingdom of Loche" and "Roots and Flavors of The Cebiche", which he presented in this city, as well as his recent work "¿What is the Future of Peruvian Gastronomy?", an analysis on new challenges facing the national cuisine.

A development expert at the Regional Government, Josue Portocarrero, and Mejia Baca Cooking School Academic Director Jose Vasquez will address this issue from a regional perspective. Luis Ginocchio, Coordinator of Apega Inclusive Gastronomic Agro-Food Chains Project, will speak about technological innovation, a key issue for the future of Peruvian and regional cuisines.

Admission is free, and the forum is open to culinary experts and students from different Chiclayo-based cooking schools and institutes.

  • Chan Chan Imformation

    The Chimu Kingdom, with Chan Chan as its capital, reached its apogee in the 15th century, not long before falling to the Incas. The planning of this huge city, the largest in pre-Columbian America, reflects a strict political and social strategy, marked by the city's division into nine 'citadels' or 'palaces' forming autonomous units.

    Chan Chan - Trujillo

    The monumental zone of around six square kilometers in the centre of the once twenty square kilometer city, comprises nine large rectangular complexes (‘citadels’ or ‘palaces’) delineated by high thick earthen walls. Within these units, buildings including temples, dwellings, storehouses are arranged around open spaces, together with reservoirs, and funeral platforms.

    Chan Chan Trujillo

    The earthen walls of the buildings were often decorated with friezes representing abstract motifs, and anthropomorphical and zoomorphical subjects. Around these nine complexes were thirty two semi monumental compounds and four production sectors for activities such as weaving wood and metal working. Extensive agricultural areas and a remnant irrigation system have been found further to the north, east and west of the city.

    The Chimu kingdom reached its zenith in the 15th century, not long before falling under the sway of the Incas. In about 1470, after a long war, the Inca Tupac Yupanqui took King Minchancaman in captivity to Cuzco. The king's son, Chumun Caur, governed the kingdom of the north, thereafter weakened and divided, on behalf of the Inca.
