Plaza Bolívar - City Plaza Lima - Peru

Away from the bustle of Lima's downtown lies Pueblo Libre's central square, Plaza Bolívar. Broad flagstone paths lace this green space. In the center is fountain crafted in 1742. The plaza is surrounded by Republican-era mansions. On the south side is the Palacio Municipal, with wooden balconies. On the north edge of the park is a yellow building where South American Liberator Simón Bolívar had stayed. Today, this former home is now the Museo Nacional de Antropología, Arqueología e Historia del Perú where you can travel back 8,000 years as you peruse the pre-Columbian artifacts. The treasures include two 2,500 year old mummies recovered near the Nazca Lines and other national gems not to be missed. Just northwest of Plaza Bolívar is Bodega Santiago Queirolo.

Location:

Avenida General Vivanco, cuadra / block 8, and Heros.
