Pisco
the city of Pisco is located to 231 km. Far from teh city of Lima to 20 m.a.s.l. in the coordinate of 13°42’02’’south latitude and 76°12’45’’ west longitude. Pisco is a Quechua word that means "bird." Pisco originally prospered because of its nearby vineyards and is the namesake of the Peruvian grape liquor, pisco.

 The area is normally visited because of the concentration of marine animals and birds at the Paracas National Reservation, or the Peruvian Galapagos. At the reserve there are the Ballestas Islands, which are off limits to people, but boat tours can get close. The Chincha Islands are also near its coast. On the islands there are many birds, including pelicans, penguins, cormorants, Peruvian boobies, and Inca terns. There are also sea lions, turtles, dolphins, and whales.
