#10 of 24 in Parks in Lima
Stroll through Parque de la Exposicion, a grand yet peaceful getaway marked with stately historical features. The park houses an old arts museum inaugurated in 1872, as well as Moorish and Byzantine pavillions. The grounds served military purposes during the Pacific War of the 19th century, when injured Peruvian soldiers were treated here and the Chilean army later used the park as a base. The pristine fountains and gardens are complemented by the traditional alfresco restaurants located within the space. Plan a Lima trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

    If you want a nice place to walk or just throw yourself to enjoy a relaxed day this is the place, in its waters I saw a beautiful turtle and a few birds that I loved, also has a museum that when I went had exposure on Nazca.

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.
