In Lima

The city of Lima is called “The city of the Kings”, is one of Peru’s 10 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and many efforts are being made to refurbish historical districts. The city's cuisine has earned in the title of gastronomic Capital of the Americas. The city offers you a colonial center, with its ground Plaza de Armas, find churches and beautiful wooden balconies.

The chances are you won't have much time in Lima and will want to move to Cusco as soon as possible. But if you do a free night before flying you should check out the nightlife in Barranco, a bohemian, seaside suburb of the capital.

It’s also a great place for a romantic early evening drink while you watch the sun slip into the Pacific Ocean.  There are trendy bars and nightclubs in Miraflores too.

What to see?

What can we see during your stay in Lima?  We recommend visiting the cathedral which was finished in 1555, was it was partly paid for by Francisco Pizarro on the condition that her father was buried there.  The interior is so impressive, 8% massive columns and high nave , Silver altars surrounded by fine woodwork, etc.  The remains of Francisco Pizarro found in the crypt lie in the small chapel. We also recommend visiting the San Francisco church which was finished in 1674, it’s one of the edifices to withstand the 1746 earthquake. On the other side of Lima, it’s located the district of Barranco where many artists live, we recommend to see the “Bridge of Sighs” with fine views of the bay.
