Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center. Major places to visit in Lima include renowned theaters, outstanding art and history museums, and colonial-era churches from the 16th and 17th centuries. When on vacation in Lima, you'll have plenty of opportunites to discover Peru's distinct and tasty cuisine, which artfully combines ingredients from the coastal areas, mountain ranges, and Amazon regions.
