Historic Center of Lima

The history of Lima dates to the 16th century.

Historic Center of Lima

The history of Lima dates to the 16th century. Ever since its founding by the Spanish, and during the Viceroyalty of Peru, Lima, the City of Kings, has been a political and cultural center of the first order on the new continent. The proof is in the Historic Center, where centuries-old churches, convents, and magnificent homes with elegant balconies have been preserved, representing renaissance, baroque, neoclassical, and other contemporary styles.

Lima's Cathedral 

At every turn, the city reveals a unique combination of the modern and the historic, highlighting the preservation of its gastronomic, musical, dance, and other artistic traditions.
 
In 1988, the Convent of San Francisco was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Historic Center of Lima received the same recognition in 1991.
