The charming city of Cajamarca is located in the beautiful Andean countryside in a valley of the same name. Despite being the largest and most important town in the Northern Andes, tourism has been slow to catch on in Cajamarca. However, its pleasing colonial architecture, fine restaurants, and many attractions both in and outside of the city, make it a worthwhile destination to spend a few days.
