City that heals asthma

The city was founded in 1563 by the Spanish explorer Gerónimo Luis de Cabrera, who called it Villa de Valverde. However, the history of the city is far longer than that. It dates back to the times when the native tribes Ica, Naska and Parakas lived in the area. In 2007, a disastrous earthquake caused heavy damages and claimed many lives. Ica and its surroundings are well-known as the traditional region where the brandy Pisco is made. Local inhabitants believe that the climate in Ica heals asthma.

Museum

The museum Museo Regional de Ica presents many exhibitions from the ancient times of the South American continent and from the time of the Spanish colonization. The real treasure of the museum is a mummy from the era of ancient civilizations from the area. Other exhibitions include a collection of scalps and remains of the Inca knot-writing.

Recommendation

When visiting this city, do not forget to taste the local drink "pisko" that you can imagine as something like winy vodka.
