  • It was chaos, but currently it is essential to visit him since to know options are many from squares, churches, government buildings, museums and shops in general go on foot or using the Metropolitan so don't waste your time in a taxi or car in the chaotic traffic of Lima visit 2 museums in the photos attached (both are in the Centre, very close to each other)

  • We hired a tour through the old town of lima that included Cathedral square churches ect. Everything I loved to go with Guide to this type of sites is highly recommended if you want to learn about the city who founded it and why many things! Also could see the statue of Francisco Pizarro, the founder of the city of lima, and that of José de san Martín the liberator of the city! Very interesting history of both. The statue of Pizarro this in a slightly hidden Park.
