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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Huaca Pucllana and Cathedral of Lima. Museum-lovers will appreciate Museo Larco and Museo de Arte de Lima - MALI. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Miraflores, don't miss a visit to Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor), join in the after-dark buzz at The Lima Gourmet Company, and pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco.

To find more things to do, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Lima trip builder app .
