Location: 

Located on the central part of western  South America, Peru is hemmed in by the  Pacific Ocean .It covers an area of  1,285,215 km2 (about the combined size of Spain, France and Italy) making it one of the 20 largest countries on Earth. 

 

Capital: Lima

 

Language: Spanish

 

History: 

Before the arrival of the first Europeans, most of the Peru  belonged to the Inca empire that extended from present-day Ecuador to central Chile. The Incas conquered the Andean people and fostered among the most advanced of ancient American civilizations. The Inca Empire ended with the conquest of its heartland and Capital Cuzco (1531-1533) by the Spaniards under Francisco Pizarro. 

In 1535, Lima was founded and soon became the capital of the Viceroyalty of Peru. The establishment of the viceroyalties of New Granada (1739) in the north and La Plata (1776) in the south greatly reduced the extent and power of the colonial administration centered in Lima. Peru declared its independence in 1821, following an uprising by local European (Creole) inhabitants against the Spanish colonial rule, which came to an end only in late 1824.Peru went to war with Spain (1864-1871); and then in  1879 Peru, together with Bolivia, fought a four-year war with Chile over possession of the nitrate-rich northern part of the Atacama desert. During the first half of the twentieth century, Peru had eighteen presidents many of whom assumed dictatorial powers. A boundary dispute with Colombia was settled in 1932 by the withdrawal of Peru from a large area in the Amazon plain. A boundary dispute with Ecuador was settled after a short war in favor of Peru (1942), but the dispute was revived in 1981.
