    Yes, it's full of gifts aimed squarely at tourists and no doubt some, perhaps many, are made in China, not Peru, but if you don't take the visit too seriously this is a great place to wander round jus...  more »

    The market gathers several shops with all the typical craftsmanship of the country. Dolls, clothes, handbags, silver and several other items for gift giving. the prices are more attractive than those of in Cusco and Machu Picchu. Worth the visit!

    Location with typical parts of the region, very craft, and very bad things too. You can find many pieces of silver, although I didn't see financial benefit or beauty in parts of bucks of the Peruvians. but the location is good to buy souvenirs.

    Messy but cheap

    Prices high enough to be a "market" but craftsmanship is costly for its production creonque here are very high. I have visited other sites and with better quality and prices are lower. As those who are in miraflores close to kennedy plaza are more cheap... no volveria go here 🤐😑

    Good souvenirs at different prices. It is necessary to haggle.

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.
