BIZARRE TOUR “Gamarra”
🔸The commercial Emporium of Gamarra, located in “La Victoria”, one of the smallest districts of Lima, stands as the largest shopping center in the American continent, characterized for its street vendors, food and the huge clothing industry, but what is a highlight in this place is the Witch Market, all this makes Gamarra a very bizarre and unique place.
🔸We will take you around the commercial city of Gamarra which is located very close to the first “Pueblos Jóvenes” (Shanty Towns) and go to the highest building of the place to have a panoramic view of all Lima city and the vast territory that Gamarra occupies, which is going to be great to get an introduction of the history of Lima and the shopping Center; in addition, we will be able to take a look at the mountains where the shanty towns are located, communities created in the 70’s and 80’s due to the massive immigration of people from the Andes and Amazon of Peru.
🔸After that, we’ll take you through a walking around the streets of Gamarra and you will have the opportunity to try some local snacks and typical street food (Locals Love it) and then we go towards the witch market. Snakes, lizards and other dissected animals are used as alternative medicine. This became part of the popular culture of locals since Andean people arrived! On the other hand, we have a variety of aromatic herbs which are used by Shamans to make ancestral rituals that invoke good luck and call upon money, wealth, and love. The black Magic is also part of the performed rituals by Shamans in Gamarra, even though we are not participants of this, we consider it is important to take you and take a look at it!
🔸At the end, if possible, you can be part of a unique experience, visiting the wise old woman from the Andes who have the ability to read your future through the coca leafs. By the end of your tour and to finish with a true local experience, we will take the linea 1 public train on the way back to your accomodation.
