The Andes : Peru, Chile and Bolivia

The Incas used the Andean topography to mark out their empire. Terra Andina has modelled on this practice to prepare the tour "Trilogy of the Andes". This involves to abolish the borders to enjoy a single geographical bloc which condenses different cultures, different nationalities, folklores and different gastronomies. However, the historic base remains common: Inca Empire and Spanish Conquista.
