These buildings have stood the test of time, not to mention the test of four earthquakes in the past century. At the Government Palace, admire the over-the-top neo-baroque architecture. But not even this dramatic structure will prepare you for the Archbishop’s Palace, an official building of the Roman Catholic diocese. Its intense façade harkens back to the medieval era, punctuated with sharply pointed design elements. You’ll also stop by Lima Cathedral and Plaza San Martin, a park that commemorates General Martin and his instrumental role in Peruvian independence from Spain.
Peru is home to many different types of indigenous musical and dance traditions. Across Peru, dancer’s outfits testify to the great textile talent of the native culture. Dyed with natural ingredients, their brightly-colored costumes have an energy all their own.
As part of the evening entertainment, you’ll eat your fill at a buffet of Peruvian dishes, made with a blend of indigenous ingredients and Spanish tastes. Flavored with spicy peppers, peanuts, and garlic, these recipes have stood the test of time, and remain a memorable experience for modern taste buds.
