Art

Peruvian art is as varied as its history and culture. There are 55 indigenous cultures in Peru, plus criollo culture, which is the mix of Spanish and indigenous cultures. If you’re in Lima, don’t miss the Museo de Arte de Lima, which has the best art collection in Peru. Lima also has many talented modern artists, like Chermany (below).

The best place to see Inca and pre-Inca art is at Cusco’s Museo de Arte Precolombino. To see artists at work in Cusco, check out the San Blas neighborhood. In many Peruvian cities you’ll be bombarded by people selling everything from paintings to handmade jewelry in the streets.
