In 1780, the great Rebellion of Túpac Amaru shook the foundation of Spanish colonial rule and spurred a series of rebellions over the next decades that eventually resulted in Peru achieving independence from Spain on 28 July, 1821 under the leadership of José de San Martin. Since independence, Peru has evolved into a modern democratic republic with a high level of human development and has become a leading travel destination in South America. Peruvian lands have been home to several ancient cultures. Though the best known is Machu Picchu, the Incan citadel,that attracts thousands of tourists each year, remnants of other pre-Columbian cultures that predate the Incas by millennia also draws visitors to Peru.
