Piura – charming desert town

Piura – Wüstenstadt mit CharmePiura used to be a sleepy little town in the middle of the desert of northern Peru. But thanks to El Niño, small trees and shrubs grow here and there and the area becomes greener instead of sterile. And that is not the only thing that has grown here. Even Piura has increasingly become a popular destination, and even if you do not necessarily spend two weeks here, it’s a nice change for a two-day trip. What makes the city on the river of the same name? Its inhabitants incredibly friendly, and the food exceptionally delicious.
