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.
Lima is known for parks, historic sites, museums, shopping, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the local landmark of Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco, contemplate the long history of Huaca Pucllana, and take in the waterfront at Miraflores Boardwalk.

For ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Lima trip builder tool .

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Jorge Ch├ívez International Airport. In April in Lima, expect temperatures between 28°C during the day and 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
