The vibrant capital of Peru gives travelers a chance to experience a city that is dynamic, full of history, culture, museums, boutiques, and that offers amazing Pacific sunsets during the 6 month summer season.
Lima’s history predates the colonial presence in the country. The establishment of the viceroyalty transformed the city into the main political and administrative center of South America. During this period, significant churches, monasteries, mansions and balconies were built. The arrival of modernity didn’t transform the historic center, which is recognized as a World Heritage Site and preserved in its original state to this day.
The cherry on top: Lima is a melting pot come to life, reflected in its internationally recognized cuisine, and blend of cultures from all parts of Peru and also internationally. Visitors that take a closer look soon discover that Lima isn’t just a gateway to Peru, but rather an extremely interesting destination itself.
