Moquegua was founded by the Spanish in 1541, where was stablished the first spanish families. Today Moquegua is located on the route of Pisco, where there are about 130 winieries. Vineyards & wineries: An archaeological recognition in the Moquegua Valley identified 130 wineries sites and facilities for pressing, fermenting and storing wine, distilled in spirits, and the manufacture of earthenware vessels used for storage and transportation. Industry and commerce (wine and spirits) generated in the Andean South a thriving regional market to supply the demands of the highland cities of La Paz, Oruro, Cochabamba and especially Potosí, thus contributing to reproduce the ancient ones during the viceroyalty stage commercial circuits that formerly had been practiced by the Aymara manors of the lacustrine plateau. From there they exchanged the products derived from alpaca wool for corn, cotton and chili that the Indians cultivated in the warmest valleys of the coast, in the region they knew as the Collasuyo (aymara) or the Contisuyo (incaico). The Main Square: Admired not only for its beauty but also because it is the central point of the city. In the center of the square is a bronze fountain consists of 3 courses and it is origin is french, where the three graces of Greek mythology show their beauty: Aglaya, Talía and Edrosine. It was intalled in 1877, and attributed to Gustavo Eiffiel.

Trunk Hill (Cerro Baul): Located in the district of Torata, 18km north-west, about 25 minutes by car from Moquegua.
