Welcome to Chosica
About 40km from Lima lies the rustic mountain town of Chosica, which sits at 860m above sea level, above the fog line. In the early half of the 20th century, it was a popular weekend getaway spot for limeños intent on soaking up sun in winter. Today its popularity has declined, though some visitors still arrive for day trips. The plaza is lined with restaurants, and in the evenings anticucho vendors gather along some of the fountain-lined promenades. From Chosica, a minor road leads to the ruins of Marcahuasi.
