During the Lima City Tour, we will pass the "Huaca Pucllana" a magnificent ceremonial and administrative centre of the Lima Culture, constructed in the 14th
century, and considered by the Incas a "ñaupallaqta" or sacred town.
We pass the Historic Centre of Lima: Paseo de la República, Plaza San Martín, Plaza Mayor, Government House, Basílica Cathedral, the Archbishop's house, and the Municipality, and ancient streets with colonial mansions and balconies in Moorish style.
We will visit the San Francisco convent and church, the biggest complex of colonial art in America, its choir and the library of the monks, the Sacristy (with paintings of Zurbaran and Rivera) the principal Cloister's Courtyard, decorated with Sevillan tiles from the 16th century, Moorish arches, and the Catacombs, subterranean crypts from the Colonial era.
The tour continues to the most traditional residential areas: passing El Olivar de San Isidro, with olive trees brought from Spain in the 17th
century, the Central Park of Miraflores and Larcomar, the symbol of modern Lima, a centre of attractions, with restaurants, shops and a privileged point to appreciate the spectacular panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. Later, we will visit the famous 'love park' in Miraflores (Parque del Amor), a beautiful green space along the ocean influenced by Barcelona architect Gaudí and featuring a sculpture by Peruvian artist Victor Delfín
