Gallery: Majesty and Mystery - Ancient Civilizations of Peru

Oct 25, 2013| by administrator

Nestled amid Andean peaks, Machu Picchu beckons modern explorers to walk in the footsteps of the ancient Inca. But this UNESCO World Heritage Site isn’t the only lingering evidence of Peru’s ancient civilizations — a journey to Trujillo presents remnants of the world’s oldest adobe city and capital of the Chimu Empire more than 1,000 years ago, while in Chicalayo, ancient aqueducts still bring life to rice paddies and sugar cane. Experience the greatest of Peru’s pre-Columbian civilizations in marketplaces, sacred sites and farmlands, and learn how ancient peoples have contributed to modern society on this Road Scholar expedition with Holbrook Travel.
