Peru is a South American country that encompasses a section of the Amazon forest and Machu Picchu, an ancient Inca city in the heights of the Andes. The region around Machu Picchu, including the Sacred Valley, the Inca Trail and the colonial city of Cuzco, is rich in archaeological sites. On the arid Pacific coast of Peru lies Lima, the capital, with a preserved colonial center and important collections of pre-Columbian art.
