Welcome to Jauja


Jauja was Francisco Pizarro’s first capital in Peru, though this honor was short-lived. There are both Inca and pre-Inca associations with Jauja, with remnants of both visible around about.

Coming from Lima, Jauja is the first place you pass along this route; about 60km southeast of Tarma and 50km north of Huancayo.
