5 Things to Know about Independence Day in Peru

Independence Day in Peru – Most countries who celebrate their independence from another nation will do it in one single glorious day. Well, not in Peru! That´s right, Peru will celebrate their upcoming independence from Spanish rule over the course of two days, on July 28th and 29th. As the Spanish conquest and subsequent rule is such a big part of Peruvian history, it made sense that one day would not be enough. The second day (July 29th) is actually meant to pay respect to the armed forces and national police of Peru. Together, the two days comprise the “Fiestas Patrias”, or national festivities.

But there are distinct variations in weather and temperatures between the different parts of Peru, meaning there are certain months when it’s better to visit a particular region. (more…)
