Ica Travel Tips And Information

Facts About Ica

The Ica region is comprised of four provinces, Ica, Pisco, Nazca, Chincha and Palpa, each with its own unique identity. Pisco, for example, is known for the production of the Pisco grape brandy, Nazca for its ancient geoglyphs and Ica for its characteristic dunes and vast desert.

The city of Ica was in the middle of a fertile valley, where Spaniards planted grapes brought from Spain’s Canary Islands, paving the way for the region’s wine production.
