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.
Visit San Isidro and Iglesia y Convento La Merced for their historical value. Get outdoors at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Marcahuasi. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lima: Callao (Balneario La Punta, Fortaleza real felipe, &more), Reserva Nacional Lomas de Lachay (in Huaral) and Castillo de Chancay (in Chancay). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at AMANO, Museo Textil Precolombino, explore the world behind art at Museo Pedro de Osma, see the interesting displays at Museo Nacional de Arqueologia, Antropologia e Historia del Peru, and contemplate the long history of Casa de Aliaga.
