Lima

destination-hero

Lima’s historic center, declared a UNESCO World heritage Site in 1988, has been gentrified, with new streets, newly painted buildings and new shops and cafés, making it a place that even Lima residents will consider visiting for an evening. Among the must-sees in the city center: the Cathedral of Lima on the Plaza Mayor; the Sanctuary of Santa Rosa Convent (where some of the dates on the tiles go as far back as 1606), and the Santo Domingo Convent with its cloisters and the paintings in the chapels of Saint Thomas Aquinas; arcades inspired by the Galleria in Milan; Casa Aliaga, built for Jerónimo de Aliaga, a viceroy of Francisco Pizarro, with wonderful woodwork and paintings, and where seventeen generations of the family have lived since it was built in 1535; the Saint Francisco Basilica and Monastery, whose vast cloisters and catacombs make this a city unto itself.
