Welcome to Pisco
Pisco shares its name with the national beverage, a brandy that is made throughout the region. The area is of historical and archaeological interest, having hosted one of the most highly developed pre-Inca civilizations – the Paracas culture from 700 BC until AD 400. Later it acted as a base for Peru’s revolutionary fever in the early 19th century.
Although the Pisco-Paracas area is spread out, it’s easy to get around. Public transportation between Pisco and the harbor at Paracas, 15km further south along the coast, leaves from Pisco’s market area or the main plaza in the El Chaco beach area of Paracas.
