Peru’s culture is a set of beliefs, customs and way of life inherited from the native Incas and Spanish conquistadors and settlers. Immigrant groups such as Africans, Japanese, Chinese and Europeans have also contributed to the society, blend of cultures and ways in which Peruvians live. Whatever their ethnic background Peruvians agree on the importance of family and religion. In many cases generations of a family live together where the younger look after the elderly and help each other in difficult times.
Peruvians express their culture through their music, literature, art forms, dance, clothing, celebrations, religion, education, sports.
