Jauja is a town in central Peru with a population of 105,000. It is situated in the fertil Montaro valley, 18 kilometers to the north of Huancayo (the capital of Junín Region), at an altitude of 3,755 m.
Huancayo later overshadowed Jauja as a commercial center, but Jauja retains much of its colonial-era charm.
