Lima Things to See and Do

Lima has enough activities to entertain the most determined sightseer. A tentative itinerary may begin with a morning stroll to the quiet refuge of one of Lima’s many plazas or parks surrounded by landmark buildings and beautiful colonial architecture. Wander into a church or monastery that highlights the dominating role of religion throughout Peru’s history. Be sure to visit a few of the fascinating museums followed by a traipse through various Inca ruins that are set against Lima’s modern backdrop. Callao is a pleasant day trip from the city.

Several websites list special exhibits and happenings in the city: Siente Mag (, Lima en Escena (, Peru This Week ( and Voces – Revista Cultural de Lima ( Literary events are covered by Red Literaria Peruana ( and Casa de la Literatura Peruana (

Many museums are closed on Monday, and during the lunch hour (1-2 p.m.).
