City Tour

Lima

This tour starts with a visit to the Pucllana Pyramid (also known as Huaca Pucllana), a ceremonial center built in the 4th century AD. This adobe pyramid is considered sacred by the Incas, and is a good place to take photos and revel in ancient culture.

Next up is the historical center of Lima, where you’ll appreciate more than fifty monuments, including the Paseo de la República, the San Martín Square, the Main Square, the Government Palace, the Archbishop’s Palace, the Cathedral Basilica, and the City Council Palace. You’ll also visit the Museum of the Banco Central del Reserva, which houses a collection of colonial currency, pre-Columbian ceramics, textiles, and paintings.

The San Francisco Convent is next. This 16th-century convent has one of the largest collections of religious art in the Americas. You’ll also visit the convent’s catacombs – these underground vaults were once used as a public cemetery, and some still house arrangements of skulls and bones.

This tour concludes with visits to contemporary Lima. You’ll see traditional residential areas of Lima, including El Olivar of San Isidro, Miraflores and Larcomar.

This tour lasts 3.5 hours.
