It is located in Junín department, in Peru's central Andean zone, at about 3,200 metres above sea level. After travelling by the central highway from Lima and crossing the high mountains of the Andes, the green valley presents a real contrast, displaying a mountain setting dominated by the Mantaro River, agricultural fields, eucalyptus fields and a blue sky.
During the Spanish conquest, the first capital of Peru was founded in the region, named Jauja, but its distance from the sea saw caused the change of the political, social and economic centre of the Vice-Royalty to Lima.
The Mantaro Valley, both in its low and high zones, contains immense archaeological wealth that reflects the importance that these populated areas had during the pre-Inca and Inca periods. The current hotel offer is broad and varied. The valley guarantees a good stay for enjoying real days in the countryside or enjoying diverse sports like walking, motor sports and mountain biking.
Minimum visiting time: 1 day.
