Parts of Lima and Arequipa have been destroyed by earth tremors on several occasions in their history. The better equipped a society is in technical terms and the more it has in the way of a network of fixed infrastructures, the more vulnerable it is to large-scale earthquakes.

Cultivators did suffer from the effects of earthquakes, but only to a limited degree.
