Piura, a city in northern Peru, bordering Ecuador, where the sun is constant all year round, and the sky blue.
A heavenly destination with beautiful beaches, restaurants and hotels to suit all tastes.
The cuisine is particularly renowned, based on seafood, fish and vegetables, such as the dish “Sudado de pescado” or “rice with seafood”. There are also delicious meat dishes, such as “agneau a la norteña” or “riz au canard créole”.
The gastronomic tradition of Northern Peru is ancient, dating back to the time of the Divine Kings of the Mochica culture, with a terroir character, copious, varied dishes, starters, drinks and desserts.
One of the best-known beaches is Cabo Blanco, where Ernest Hemingway fished for the Black Merlin, then attempted to make an unfinished film based on his work: The Old Man and the Sea.
We find important archaeological sites, such as Narihuala and above all the Inca site of Aypate.
We can also admire craft villages such as Catacaos, dotted with fine goldsmiths and handicrafts, and discover a cuisine renowned for its flavour and goodness.
The village of Chulucanas, 50 km from Piura, renowned for its ceramics, is very peaceful and charming.
