We are very proud of our Peruvian culture. It is multifaceted and difficult to be addressed in a single way.
We think that a good way to present our Peruvian culture, beyond merely focusing on our ancient history, is to examine the richness of all of our regions, including our native populations, our indigenous languages, as well as our customs, myths, legends, and beliefs.
Peru is blessed with some of the greatest biodiversity in the world. Its geography creates multiple climates, which endow it with unique landscapes and an immense variety of flora and fauna.
This diversity does not end with Peru’s flora and fauna. The varied waves of migration throughout our history have produced a vibrant cultural diversity, best evidenced in our amazing gastronomy, which is celebrated rightfully around the world.
Peruvian culture is a proud product of the initial mixture of the ancestral indigenous knowledge, arts and sciences, and those of the Spanish civilization, which resulted in a rich tapestry with splendorous results: a mestizo culture with a varied, sumptuous, and complex national literature, ceramics, painting, music, dance, and cinematography.
Peruvian culture has continued to evolve and to integrate other groups, among them, Chinese, Japanese, Europeans, and Africans who have diversified and enriched further our heritage.
That is why we Peruvians feel committed to ensuring the preservation, development, and dissemination of our Peruvian culture around the globe.
