The Peru Cultural Society welcomes you to our website. The Society is a volunteer-run organization in Boston, MA dedicated to promoting the history, customs and heritage of Peru. Our goal is to enhance awareness of Peruvian culture and to provide a place for those interested in learning about Peru to learn more and to discuss their interests.

This website begun in 2005 as the project of the Boston University Program of Latin American Studies. A group of enthusiasts with the common interest in Peruvian culture decided to join efforts to establish an online resource that could create a comprehensive picture of Peru in a format that meets the realities of the digital information edge. We realized that to be successful this site had to be interesting to both beginners and enthusiasts alike. And thus began Discover-Peru.org. Over few years the group grew from just few people to a whole team of contributors.

We want to share our passion for the rich and diverse civilization of Peru in a way that will engage and inspire readers learn more and get involved.
