Ica is a city in southern Peru. On its main square Plaza de Armas, the cathedral has a neoclassical façade. Damaged by a 2007 earthquake, the Lord of Luren Church once held an idol of Ica’s patron saint, now housed in a Carmelite convent. Ica Regional Museum shows ancient pottery. Southwest, Huacachina village is an oasis set amid sand dunes, like the huge Cerro Blanco. Its Huacachina Lagoon is ringed by palm trees.
