World Monuments Fund's Commitment to the Heritage of Peru
This year marks 200 years since Peru's proclamation of independence. As we commemorate this bicentennial, we want to share some of World Monuments Fund's (WMF) work preserving the treasured heritage of this incredible country. The Peru’s enormous variety of cultural sites requires a sustained commitment to preserve its heritage for future generations.
WMF’s activities in Peru have grown considerably since embarking on its first project to develop a conservation and urban rehabilitation plan for the historic center of Cusco, former capital of the Inca Empire, in 1997. WMF established a Peru office in 2014, the organization’s only Latin American affiliate, to further protections of the country’s immense cultural heritage and to enrich the lives of its citizens.
Join us on a tour of some of Peru’s incredible heritage, where WMF has made a transformative difference, and learn about how our work will reach into the future as we remain committed to preserving Peru’s extraordinary treasures.
