  • Beautiful square with a central monument dedicated to Simón Bolívar and full of beautiful and important buildings around. Is located in the Centre of Lima, near the Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor). Worth spending, take some pictures and follow.

  • The plaza Bolivar is a place where social activities are carried out among you are political support, or in general, around you change stores, you find Jirón de la Unión (known), is also the Bolivar Hotel, very nice, if you want to stay in a hotel with wooden arrays and feel part of a story, I recommend the hotel, bedrooms are beautiful.
