First City

The first Spanish city established in an area now controlled by Peru, Piura was founded by Francisco Pizarro in 1532. Piura holidays offer plenty of opportunities for exploring a desolate, barren landscape on a range of ecotourism experiences. One of Piura's main attractions remains the nearby coastline, with reliably warm waters, long sandy beaches, and protected marine environments. Back in town, the isolated and independent spirit of Piura comes through in its well-preserved colonial architecture, maintained cobblestone streets, and museums of local history.
