Lima holidays

Introduction

Dubbed the City of Kings, Lima was the capital of the Spanish Empire in South America for almost two centuries, unmatched in the Old World for wealth and elegance until a disastrous earthquake in 1746.

Today Lima's best neighbourhoods are Miraflores, San Isidro and Barranco, where smart restaurants and luxury hotels surround pyramids, neat parks and ocean-front shopping districts.

The colonial centre is one of Peru's ten World Heritage sites, blessed with the grand Plaza de Armas, fine churches and attractive wooden balconies.

Lima's fine cuisine has earned the city a reputation as the gastronomic capital of the Americas.
