  • Amazing attractions in Lima, Peru

    Lima at night

    Lima at night

    The former heart of the Spanish colonial empire, founded by famous conquistador Francisco Pizarro, Lima is not what one would call a pretty city.

    It’s desert surroundings are less than flattering, and the capital is gritty and loud, but at the same time there is a special kind of beauty in it, in the old colonial buildings, the rather tidy slums, and the sharp contrast between all of this and the modern architecture erected in recent years. Many travelers don’t stick around in Lima on their way to other, more obvious attractions, and many of the Peruvian capital’s sights go unnoticed.

    However, if you take a second look at Lima, you’ll find that there are churches, colonial mansions, museums and even some pre-Columbian temples hiding in this chaotic city. If you find yourself passing through, don’t miss out on some of amazing attractions in Lima, Peru.
