Promotional Flyer_vers2.jpg
Peru has some of the oldest civilizations on Earth, Caral was the first city in Americas and base of the Andean culture being approximately 5500 years old.
In those times, respect for the diverse ideologies of other cultures was important to create good relationships for the well being of everyone. This is also known as “Sumaq Kawsay” or Andean philosophy of Good Living.
