Peruvian Portrait

Peruvian Portrait

Peru's ethnic diversity is a unique combination, where the cultural legacy of the Incas blends in with the Spanish culture that came into play early in XVI century through the hands of Francisco Pizarro.

It was further enriched by the contribution of other cultures such as non-Hispanic Europeans, African slaves and East Asians as well.

Peru highlands is, for the most part, populated by American Indians who speak Quechua and farm the land pretty much in the same way as the Incas did.
