Cajamarca is the capital of the Cajamarca region of Peru. It is an ancient city, with roots dating back three thousand years. Before the colonialist era, before the Inca era, and even before the Chavín peoples, Cajamarca was inhabited by the Huacaloma, Layzón, Cumbe Mayo y Otuzco peoples.
Cajamarca lies approximately 150 mi. (241 km) south of Ecuador and 75 mi. (121 km) east of the Pacific Coast in the highlands of northern Peru. It is surrounded by fertile lands in a valley bordered by the Andes mountains.
Just 9 mi. (14 km) to the north of Cajamarca lies the second largest gold mine in the world, the Yanacocha mine. This open pit mine, which is run by the Denver, Colorado based Newmont Mining Corporation, has caused controversy in the region as a result of contamination of the water and air.
Cajamarca has a subtropical highland climate, with very consistent high temperatures of 70-72°F (21-22°C) year-round and lows of 37-45°F (3-7°C).
