Callao port features one of the few nice natural harbours on the Pacific coast. It is the port for Lima, Peru's ancient capital. Travelers may go deeper into the country from here in order to visit the Incas ancient capital at Cuzco and Machu Picchu high in Andean foothills.
Callao was founded in 1537, and was the main port for shipping the silver and gold taken by the Spanish conquerors from the Inca Empire. As a result, the port was frequently assaulted by European enemies of Spain and pirates and in 1578 was pillaged by Sir Francis Drake. The Real Felipe fortress withstood a series of sieges by Spanish forces during the wars of independence. After in 1823 Simon Bolívar landed here, it was also the scene of final surrender of Spain.
