LIMA CITY TOUR (HALF DAY) - Peru

FULL PACKAGES DETAILS

Location: Lima
Starting / Ending Point: Your hotel or hostel in Lima (*)
Peru's capital, Lima, was once reputed to be the most beautiful city in Spanish America. Lima today retains much of its charm, despite its rather shapeless expanse of modern suburbs and dusty shantytowns that run for miles in each direction along the Panamerican Highway. Long established as Peru's seat of government, the city is home to more than eight million people, over half of who live in relative poverty without decent water supplies, sewage or electricity. There is still a certain elegance to the old colonial centre, and the city hosts a string of excellent museums.

This city tour makes a perfect combination of the Pre Hispanic period, Colonial era, and Modern Lima that allows the visitor to get an idea of Lima’s whole history.

We start by visiting the “Huaca Pucllana” a magnificent ceremonial and administrative centre of the Lima Culture, constructed in the 14th century, and considered by the Incas a “ñaupallaqta” or sacred town.

 We visit the Historic Centre of Lima: Paseo de la República, Plaza San Martín, Plaza Mayor, Government House, Basílica Cathedral, the Archbishop’s house, and the Municipality, and ancient streets with colonial mansions and balconies in Moorish style.

We will visit the San Francisco convent and church, the biggest complex of colonial art in America, its choir and the library of the monks, the Sacristy (with paintings of Zurbaran and Rivera) the principal Cloister’s Courtyard, decorated with Sevillan tiles from the 16th century, Moorish arches, and the Catacombs, subterranean crypts from the Colonial era.

 The tour continues in the most traditional residential areas: El Olivar de San Isidro, with olive trees brought from Spain in the 17th century, the Central Park of Miraflores and Larco Mar, the symbol of modern Lima, a centre of attractions, with restaurants, shops and a privileged point to appreciate the spectacular panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean.
