Photo: Hookers and History: Brothel Operating Next to Ancient Archeological Site in Peru
An area in Peru appears to be catering to a very specific clientele.
Near an ancient archeological site in Huánuco, there currently sits something called the “Las Vegas” nightclub and brothel, for those interested in both the history and hookers of Peru.
Huánuco authorities recently petitioned the municipality to close the nearby brothel saying it is too close the tourist route and is not the image locals want to portray.
Some against the brothel’s location have gone so far as to say it is illegal, claiming it “violates constitutional rights and principles, such as the human right to cultural heritage.”
Petitioners are asking Mayor Jesus Giles to repeal the permit he gave to the business.
The ancient site the brothel is near is home to Kotosh and Cruz Pata Archaeological Centers.
