Travel To Lima Peru Trip To Lima Peru

Lima was founded by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro on January 18, 1535, as La Ciudad de los Reyes, or The City of Kings. Lima became the most important city in the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru and, after the Peruvian War of Independence, was made the capital of the Republic of Peru. Today around one-third of the Peruvian population lives in the Lima metropolitan area.

Lima is an entertaining and friendly city. Lima was the most prized jewel of the Spanish colonies and for 300 years the wealthiest city in the Americas. Its historic center was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1991. Lima is a city of fascinating museums that exhibit treasures discovered at archaeological sites from pre-Hispanic cultures.

South of the Lima is Pachacamac, a pre-Hispanic complex that was the site of the most important pilgrimage shrine in ancient Peru. To the north Lima sits the remains of Caral, the oldest city in the Americas, built 5,000 years ago. Travel to Lima Peru.
