  • Marvel at Peru′s social hub, Miraflores, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean
  • See the exquisite bronze fountain in the centre of Plaza de Armas

The thriving metropolis of Lima is a cocktail of Peru’s modernity and colonial legacy. Its streets dotted with cathedrals, plazas and charming balconies on colonial style mansions are reminiscent of its Spanish legacy. Named the ‘City of Kings’ by the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro in 1535, Lima bears this title proudly.

Miraflores and San Isidro form the hub of Lima’s social and commercial life. An exquisite bronze fountain in the centre of Plaza de Armas will welcome you to the heart of Lima’s colonial heritage. Flanked by the imposing Cathedral and government buildings, the plaza stands testimony to the days when Lima was the seat of the Spanish Inquisition.

See the soul of Lima as you stroll along the streets of this cosmopolitan city and be fascinated by its elusive blend of Spanish history and 21st century modernity.
