Lima


Main Square

Lima, the capital of Peru, is where about one third of the country's population resides. It is the economic and political center of the country. Its historical buildings, palaces, churches, large houses with balconies, as well as parks, stand out in the heart of the city. The more touristy neighborhoods like Miraflores and San Isidro accommodate the upper-middle class of the city and offer a variety of restaurants, nightlife, and entertainment. The city is distinguished by the many museums it possesses, some of which are the most important in the country. 

On the outskirts of Lima are the main beaches of Peru which you can get to by highway. These beaches are visited mostly during the summer.
