Lima, the capital of Peru is waiting for you to come visit. Known as the Kings City, a name given to it by the conquistador Francisco Pizarro, Lima is where you can discover South American history and information on a country whose roots go way back to the days of the Inca Empire and the Spanish takeover. Tourist stops and attractions in Lima cover many places that are worth taking in and seeing the city as it has developed over the years, but here are a few that should make their way to the top of your Lima excursions list.
Lima tours include the Monasterio De San Francisco, a former monastery where monks of the order of St Francis were housed over 300 years ago. The most famous part of this monastery is the catacombs section, which contains the tombs of many of the monks who inhabited the monastery. For those who like a little adventure and like visiting underground secret passageways, the Monastery is a great place to visit.
Other Lima activities include visiting the Palacio Torre Tagle, an old mansion where the Peru Department of Foreign affairs currently operates. The palace is made up of some fine wooden balconies and columns that embed a style of both traditional European as well as some Moorish influence from northern Africa. This site is generally not open to the public, but you may be able to visit it with an appointment made by the Imagen Institucional del organismo público.
Other things to do in Lima include seeing the Las Brisas de Titicaca. This must see show will put on a display of traditional Peruvian dances and story-telling performances. One of their shows, Folklore Nights even serves up optional Peruvian specialty dinners to enjoy while you're watching the show. Why not taste the best of the local entrees while catching the colorful display of one of the city's hotspots?
It's not hard to find on the map, Lima is a place you should chart your course towards when you travel down south through Latin America. Thanks to Expedia, your trip is easy to book.
