  • Peruvian Literature's House is located in an old train station. In their various rooms makes a tour of all the literary manifestations Peru. Featured for Vargas Llosa, of course. You can see the plight and the detail of the survey. You would have to devote a whole day to see everything in detail. In the background, the Literary Café. But I had no coffee ... And a delicious space for reading. Do not miss!

  • It's a m calm place where you can read and discover many beautiful things related to Peruvian literature 🙂
  • It's nice to see the honoring of one's literary greats in a museum. The Nobel prize winner, Mario Vargas Llosa gets pride of place along with a about a dozen others. This building was originally the train station of Lima.
  • You can read books here for free, attend workshops for free, and take some courses for that same fee here as well. My only complaint is that I can no longer take the train here (it used to be Lima's main and only train station for a long time before becoming what it is now, though, admittedly, no one took the train anymore, but I'm still salty about it, so 4 stars it is)
  • The Literature House of Peru(The Peruvian Literate house), a wonderful place with great indoor architecture with tons of books.
  • A bit of local culture.
