GUIDED CITY TOUR OF ICA SINCE $108 USD Per Person
The Wine And Pisco Capital Of Peru
The Ica Region has a remarkable geography and rich history. The first settlers are from 10.000 years ago, from which the Wari, Nazca
, Ica and Paracas
Culture developed, the latter being the most important.
It is the only region of the southern coast formed by plains also called coast plains since theAndean Codillera is erected inside.
Ica's configuration is due to the geomorphology of its two big and unique fluvial watersheds: the Pasco watershed and Ica watershed. Also, it has an incomplete and continuous current inadequately called Rio Grande because its short waters do not even reach the sea; its waters are mainly used for agriculture inPampa de Nazca
and Ingenio, its final watershed is dry since sand and dried lands absorb its short resources. Strong and persistent winds called "Paracas" are present and originate large clouds of sand. The Nazca culture, on the contrary, well-known for its artistic pottery, in which colorful designs and representations excel over the form, the same as their famous lines and figures that have undergone implausible interpretations. This culture expanded from the second century BC through the seventh century AD. They have left us their wonderful aqueducts that made good use of underground water, of rivers and rain, showing a great knowledge of hydraulic engineering.
Pisco is a liquor distilled from grapes made in wine-producing regions of South America. It is the most widely consumed spirit in Bolivia and Peru
. The right to produce Pisco as an exclusive cultural commodity has been the centre of a dispute between Chile and Peru
, although Chile produces markets and exports Chilean Pisco in larger quantities. The iconic cocktail in these countries is the Pisco sour.
