Ica – the city of eternal summer

Ica is a hot, busy and busy city on the edge of the desert, about 300 km south of the Peruvian capital, Lima. Around Ica there are fertile areas where fruits and vegetables are grown, mainly, of course, table grapes from which the popular Pisco national drink is made.

Long before the Spanish conquistador Gerónimo Luis de Cabrera founded a city here on June 17, 1563 under the name of Villa de Valverde, human settlements were found here. And not only of the Incas, but also of pre-Inca peoples such as the Paracas. And someone else lived here long before the Spaniards: the Icadyptes Salasi, a prehistoric penguin, whose approximately 30 million years of fossil remains were found here in the Atacama Desert.
