Today, we’ll be discussing the archaeological site Caral in Peru.
These pyramidal constructions were built at least 500 year before Egypt’s pyramids.
Its design is constructive and suggests a well-thought project with sophisticated social structures. You will find temples, streets, neighborhoods, public squares and amphitheaters as well as warehouses, altars and roads.
These characteristics distinguish Caral, making it America’s first civilization. This is without doubt a Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
However, the 70,000 visitors per year are a far cry from Machu Picchu’s 1.5 million tourists or Egypt’s 3 million tourists.
Caral, however, is not the only one. Vichama Bandurria Spero, Spero and Miraya are all nearby archaeological sites that offer potential opportunities for Peru’s tourism growth.
