In a half day you will have the chance to distinguish the uncknowledged history and secrets of the Callao by visiting the Real Felipe Museum. Therefore, take a tour through the colorful town of Chucuito and sightsee through some of La Punta’s most impressive upscale beaches.
The Real Felipe, the most imposing of all the fortresses built by the Spanish in their American colonies, is located in Callao, Peru's principal port. It was constructed from 1747 as a defense against pirate attacks from corsairs who knew very well that Spanish galleons, loaded with Inca gold, departed from here. The fortress is currently the seat of the Peruvian Army Museum. The Real Felipe has a true aura of history, and the military authorities therefore decided that the location was an ideal place to exhibit the army's different aspects during the past, and from Inca times onward.
