Lima Peru

Lima is the capital and largest city of Peru. While many people use Lima as a gateway to Cuzco, Arequipa, or the Amazon, Lima, also known as the City of the Kings, has much to offer visitors. It's a city rich in historical sites, monumental colonial architecture, and old-world charm. The Plaza Mayor or Plaza de Armas is located in the heart of Lima's Historic Centre and is surrounded by major tourist attractions such as the Cathedral, the Archbishop Palace, and the Government Palace. At the center of the square is a fountain with a bronze statue. Jirón de la Unión, a pedestrian street that links the Plaza de Armas and Plaza San Martín, was once a prominent street where aristocrats resided. Today, it's primarily a shopping street, but as you stroll along, you'll see many beautiful colonial buildings with wooden balconies and ornate grilled windows. Lima is a city closely connected to the ocean. The Costera promenade, which runs along the city's coastline, is filled with numerous restaurants and cafes. Lima is also the best place to sample the diverse Peruvian cuisine, which incorporates a wide range of ingredients from the coast, mountains, and Amazon regions. Despite its size and chaos, Lima, with its stunning sights, delicious food, and friendly locals, is definitely worth a visit.
