Lima is the capital of Peru and its largest city, with a metropolitan area of almost 8.5 million people.

The city was the seat of the Spanish rule over 300 years, and the result is a charming historic center with wonderful churches, cloisters and monasteries that have made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Lima is a gastronomic center, and the best place to try the unique fusion that is Peruvian cuisine, which has a huge variety of ingredients from coast, mountain and Amazon regions.

Unusual Local Feature

Great Food

Lima is known as the Gastronomical Capital of South America. A center of immigration and the center of the Spanish Viceroyalty, Lima has incorporated dishes brought from the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors and waves of immigrants: African, European, Chinese, and Japanese. Besides international immigration there has been, since the second half of the 20th century, a strong internal flow from rural areas to cities, in particular to Lima. This has influenced Lima's cuisine with the incorporation of the immigrant's ingredients and techniques (for example, the Chinese extensive use of rice or the Japanese approach to preparing raw fish). The genres of restaurants in Lima include Creole food, Chifas, Cebicherias, and Pollerias.
Historic Landmarks
Lima's pre-Hispanic and colonial architecture is beautiful and the city has several museums (such as Museo Larco) that tells the story of a country with a long history that produced a large number of coastal and Andean civilizations (such as the Moche, Chavin, and the Incas) and many local cultures.

The Historic Centre of Lima, made up of the districts of Lima and Rímac, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988. Some examples of colonial architecture include the Monastery of San Francisco, the Plaza Mayor, the Cathedral, Covenant of Santo Domingo, the Palace of Torre Tagle, and much more.
