Genevieve Guadalupe – Country – Architecture
Architecture varies a great deal in Peru, from pre-Incan, colonial, modern to amazonian, but one particular architecture remains the same throughout the Altiplano. It is the beautiful little farm house, a house made out of adobe with a reed roof. Some just have a front door in the middle, some have a window on either side of the door. The roofs are always perfectly made. They have the same look and color (earth tone) and blend in beautifully in the vast landscape. This ancient architecture remains alive today, evoking a sense of tranquility and peace.
