It’s common practice buying some typical crafts and souvenirs when visiting a foreign country. Peru has a rich diversity of artisan craft works, and you surely find something that will remind you of your amazing time here. If you don’t want to drag around locally bought souvenirs during your entire trip, Lima is a great place to find arts and crafts from around the country. While some pieces you find are truly unique examples of Peruvian craftsmanship, others are mass produced, especially for tourists.
Whatever city you visit in Peru, mostly in or around the city centers, you surely will come across some nice little shops selling beautiful handicrafts and nice clothing made of Peru’s famous alpaca.
