San Isidro, Lima

(900+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
San Isidro may have become Lima's financial center, but it is also home to neo-classical architecture, cobbled streets, and local artists. Here you will find Wak'a Wallamarka, a 4th-century burial temple that houses a collection of Indian artifacts on display for visitors. Walk the charming side streets of this neighborhood, visit its museums, and experience its fine dining and shopping options. With famous residents like Fernando de Szyszlo, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, José García Belaúnde, and Francisco Tudela, this district has become a cultural hub in Lima. Add San Isidro and other attractions to your Lima trip itinerary using our Lima tourist route planner.
