Known all over the world for sharing its name with Peru’s national drink, Pisco is one of the five provinces that conform the region of Ica, located south from Lima. This city gives birth to the name of the most famous hard liquor of America and one of Peruvians’ biggest prides.
The aromas of Pisco are the perfumes of Peru. In the lands of Ica, “pisco grapes” are harvest, distinguished by their unique fragrances that perfectly conjugate the favorite flavors of the European sommeliers. This is one of the reasons why visiting its vineyards is a must go adventure. Pisco is also a tribute to the Pre-Columbian heritage, since its name evokes a great diversity of birds in the south of Perú , some of the great example are parihuanas, huerequeques, zarcillos and condors, since the word Pisco comes from the quechua word Pisscu which means Bird.
In the sunny lands of the valley- which occupies the largest portion of coast from the region of Ica- the breath-taking coastal mountains of the peninsula of Paracas stand out. In the bays of Paracas and Independencia the National Reserve of Paracas can be found. In this magical spot, a union of the desert and the sea gives place to a representative example of the marine ecosystems from the cold sea of the Peruvian Current, considered the most productive on earth. Also, thanks to this union, the ecosystems of a variety of migratory species are preserved for food and refuge during long travels.
Pisco is the perfect mixture and adventure and relaxing. An amazingly surprising desert with beaches, valleys and an incredible geography, natural works of art.
Through its Dunas, the charm of the desert continues to dazzle and at the edge of the sea, the routine gives place to the adventure, turning the sand and adrenaline, everything that does not surprise anymore.
