Caral

Caral, Peru


"In 2001, the oldest town in South America was officially announced. Dating to 2600 BCE, it pushed back the date for the “first town” [by] one millennium. What is even more intriguing, is that the town of Caral has pyramids, contemporary with the Egyptian Pyramid Era."

"In July 2006, Caral was opened for tourism, even though it had already received 7,338 visitors in 2003, 15,265 visitors in 2004 and 21,068 visitors in 2005. With the support of PromPeru, and its location being just two hours north of Lima along the easily accessible Pan-American Highway, this number is expected to rise in the coming years. It will continue to undergo a series of restorations that will provide an added value to the existing and future tourist circuits in the region." ~ Philip Coppens, from Caral: the oldest town in the New World.
