It is sorrounded by La Libertad, Huanuanuco, Lima and the Pacific ocean. It has a territory of about 36Km2. The capital of this department is Huaraz. It is located in the coastal and highland parts. Its climate is hot and dry. This department was created in 1891 with the name of Huaylas but it was replaced on february 28 th 1839 by Ancash.

Hi Caitlin,
How are you, I'm fine. Today I'm working alone. In this opportunity I have searched about Callao and this is the information I would like to share with you: Callao is a Constitucional province and main port of Peru. It is located in a bay on the west part of Lima. The port is sorrounded by San Lorenzo's island. It is an imported center of textile, cereals, machinery, paper and food. The industrial activity of this city is centered in refineries, a beer factory called ®Pilsen Callao®. Callao also has a Technical University that was opened in 1926. Callao was founded in 1537 and has become one of the most important ones in South American . I hope we continue with our correspondence
