Within the cities of Peru, Cuzco possibly, for its colonial roots and its proximity to Machu Pichu or Arequipa for being a monumental city are two of the most sought after in the Andean country destinations.
Lima, capital of Peru, is a city that mixes the most cosmopolitan proposals, colonial atmosphere and places of significant historical importance.
Downtown Lima have several points of great interest as his or Cathedral Square, although we opted us that precious space is the Plaza de Armas, where stands out as the most attractive building Government Palace, residence of the President of the Republic and noted for its beautiful interior rooms, among which we chose the Golden Hall and Jorge Brasade we admire for its architecture and finishes. This palace, visited from Monday to Saturday if you have pre-booked, also hosts the appeal of watching the changing of the presidential guard every Sunday at 12.
In Plaza de Armas is also usual to contemplate some of Peruvian folk dances, represented by groups of experts dancers among which Huaconada, dance central Peruvian sierra, declared by UNESCO Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
From the religious point of view should also not miss the visitor the Church of the Sacred Heart of Mary, neoclassical and the highest in the churches of the capital, with elevated views of the city.
If what you like is to walk the Malecon area of Miraflores, a prelude to the beach of the same name, the most popular of the capital next to the collection of Horseshoe Cove, a haven of tranquility amid the bustle of the do not miss great city.
Speaking of Lima Peru and do not forget the visitor cuisine and a pisco sour taste in Huaringas or the best fish ceviche Javier Huong. A real pleasure.
