Santiago de Surco

This district is characterized by the quantity and quality of its parks. In fact it is considered as the ecological tourist district of Lima.

Santiago de Surco

Santiago de Surco was one of the first towns in Peru and was officially founded as a district in 1929. Today it is a mainly residential area of ​​middle and upper class, although it has interesting tourist attractions that we tell you in this guide. This district is characterized by the quantity and quality of its parks. In fact it is considered as the ecological tourist district of Lima.

Santiago de Surco

Formerly it was a town of sinners and farmers and today it has a wine heritage, of which there are only 4 producers of wine and pisco in the district, which are the El Guayabo, San Lorenzo and Cruceta estates and the Cruz Blanca Vineyard. This is a fairly large district so the variety of hotels is equally wide. You will find options at a good price and other much more expensive in the most exclusive areas. We recommend if you want to stay here that you select the accommodations to the Jockey Plaza sector.
 
What to do
The main tourist attraction of Santiago de Surco is, without a doubt, the Friendship Park. A beautiful park where you can see the emblematic mosaic arch and where the Pisco Sour Festival is held every April 22. An additional park that you must visit in this district is La Loma Amarilla on Monte de los Olivos Avenue. It is a natural elevation where locals usually go to pass, run, take their pets and have fun and where at least 34 types of birds and variety of trees can be observed. The main commercial center of Lima is the Jockey Plaza and is located in this district, specifically on Javier Prado Avenue. In this shopping center there are stores of the most recognized brands worldwide, restaurants, cinemas and supermarkets. If you plan to buy in Lima, you should not stop going to Jockey Plaza. Other visits that you must make in Santiago de Surco is to the Plaza Mayor, reopened in 1997. A square with flower gardens and that during the weekends the neighbors approach to dance music of yesteryear live, something that is known like the 'toilets.'
