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.
Head to Shopping Center Larcomar (Centro Comercial Larcomar) and Galeria Indigofor some retail therapy. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at San Isidro and Museo MATE. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lima: Playa Santa Maria del Mar (in Santa Maria Del Mar), Reserva Nacional Lomas de Lachay (in Huaral) and El Silencio (in Punta Hermosa). Spend the 10th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte de Lima - MALI, get engrossed in the history at Museo Larco, see the interesting displays at National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History, and pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco.

To find traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Lima trip planner.
