Peru begins reopening archaeological sites, Machu Picchu still shut

Oct 24, 2020 13:11 IST

A total of 17 archeological sites and museums opened their doors across Peru this week, after more than seven months of closure as a measure to reduce the spread of the new coronavirus. Other nine sites will do so progressively until the end of the month, and six more are expected to open gradually between November and January. There is no date yet for the reopening of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, which received 1.5 million tourists a year, and which is the largest Peruvian attraction for international tourism.
