  • 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!

  • When you are in the old centre of Lima, be sure to pass in the House of Peruvian Literature, nice place, we can add more knowledge there, place this part of Peru's history worth saving in our minds. Good ride.

  • Interesting place to visit, however very quickly. This is a library located in an old railway station. The place is frequented by students who spend their time focusing on studying or reading.

  • 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.
  • While I arrived before it was open the building immediately strike me due to its design
  • Great place!

Where to stay in Lima

One of Peru's most expensive destinations, Lima offers accommodations that range from modern hotel high-rises to family-run guesthouses. Most visitors stay in Barranco, Miraflores, or San Isidro, three of the city's safest and prettiest neighborhoods, which offer a good selection of budget lodgings. For something truly authentic, look for hotels located in restored mansions, many of which offer pleasant rooms overlooking manicured enclosed gardens, ideal for enjoying romantic meals or hosting small private parties.
