Moquegua - Peru

MoqueguaThe department de Moquegua possesses a varied terrain with gorges and valleys, desert and rocky zones, and rich soil perfect for agriculture, especially cultivating wine grapes.

Life moves at a slower pace in cities like Moquegua that is characterized by its traditional houses with slanted roofs, its sunny climate the whole year long, and the production de excellent piscos, fruit, and desserts. The Main Square is decorated with a fountain designed by Gustave Eiffel, and in the Cathedral de Santo Domingo, the inhabitants venerate the bodily remains de Santa Fortunata, a martyr from the first centuries de Christianity.


There are several, small Fotosque towns dotting the department de Moquegua such as Torata with its impressive eighteenth century mills that still use stone to grind and its homes with slanted roofs and the fertile valleys like that de Omate, famous for its fruit and river shrimp. The port de Ilo is the main industrial dock for southern Peru, and the beaches down in this part de the coastline are de fine, white sand broken now and again by spectacular cliffs and rock formations.
