Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
Visit Museo Convento San Francisco y Catacumbas and Cathedral of Lima for their historical value. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Huaca Pucllana and Museo Larco. Get out of town with these interesting Lima side-trips: Callao (Balneario La Punta & Palomino) and El Silencio (in Punta Hermosa). And it doesn't end there: head outdoors with Peruvian Soul, take a stroll through Miraflores, take in the dramatic natural features at Marcahuasi, and take in the waterfront at Miraflores Boardwalk.
