The right destination for those who want to fall headlong into the Inca culture, the great attraction of the country is Machu Picchu, but it is not limited to that. Rich in culture, history and gastronomy, Peru is one of the favorite destinations for backpackers, who still say that the energy of the place is mystical. With 34% of the population living on the poverty line, the country still suffers today from the reflexes of a dictatorship that hampered its growth. In its culture it brings strong traces of the Inca, Spanish and indigenous civilization, with predominance of one or the other according to the region. Among the cities with the greatest tourist visitation are Lima, Cusco, Ica, Nazca, Arequipa and Águas Calientes.
