Central Lima Things to See and Do

The Centro Histórico is the heart of Lima, and a can’t-miss for any visitor. It is where you’ll find the best museums, restored homes and city parks, as well as many churches and other religious buildings. Spanish colonial architecture – some with Moorish features – may deck much of the downtown area, but you’ll also find remnants of the city’s pre-Columbian past at the Parque de la Muralla. The nation’s rich ethnic mix can also be experienced in the Barrio Chino and at the Museo Nacional Afroperuano.
