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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Reserva Nacional Lomas de Lachay and Spas. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Parasailing & Paragliding. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lima: Playa Santa Maria del Mar (in Santa Maria Del Mar) and Balneario La Punta (in Callao). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of San Isidro, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Iglesia de las Nazarenas, explore the world behind art at Museo MATE, and take in the views from Bridge of Sighs.
