About the tour

In this very special tour we will celebrate the bicentennial of “el país de todas las sangres” or the country of all the races, colors, and flavors, while we learn about the causes of the independence from Spain, the different social groups that existed in the pre-independent Lima, the difficult starting of this new country and the events that took place on July 28, 1821, the reasons behind Peru being one of the last countries in South America to separate from Spain, and lots more. We will also see some of the most important monuments created to celebrate the centennial and the bicentennial (1921 - 2021) of our national party. Join this tour and celebrate with us 200 years of independence
