In the midst of a vast desert is Pisco, a city of south-central Peru and capital of the province of the same name. Located on the Peruvian coast, every year it is visited by travelers heading to the Ballestas Islands, Paracas National Reserve, Laguna de Moron and the ruins of Tambo Colorado. Pisco has a population of 135,735 inhabitants and its main economic activities include growing cotton, grapes, fruit and corn; fishing, agricultural exports and tourism activities are strengthened every day with the departure of aircraft flying over the Nazca lines currently generating 90% of traffic at that airport. Among its vineyards, wineries, sweet “teja” treats and pisco-related characters, this city invites you to explore, taste and dance to the beat of Afro-Peruvian music.
