Cajamarca

(3.8/5 based on 3,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, nature
Located 2,750 m (8,900 ft) above sea level, the Andean city of Cajamarca experiences a mild highland climate, which, along with the area's fertile soil, has allowed agriculture to thrive. Recently, the climate has also boosted tourism in Cajamarca, with the mild weather and topography attracting plenty of outdoor enthusiasts. Tour Cajamarca's town center to see a wealth of colonial Spanish architectural highlights, which differ from many of Peru's other buildings from the same period. Once again, this is down to the climate and geography, with builders using local stone, rather than the clay of the desert cities toward the coast. Our Peru travel itinerary maker allows you to schedule your trip to Cajamarca, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
