Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lima: Complejo Arqueologico de Rupac (in Huaral), El Canon de Austisha (in Huarochiri) and Playa Santa Maria del Mar (in Santa Maria Del Mar). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Circuito Magico Del Agua, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Penascal, get engrossed in the history at Museo Convento San Francisco y Catacumbas, and admire the local landmark of Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor).
