San Borja

San Borja is one of Lima’s newer suburbs. Until 1983, it was part of the Surquillo neighborhood. It is named for a hacienda that once spanned this corner of the Río Rímac basin. San Borja was one of the few sections of the capital that was actually planned out, and thus has many green areas. Today, it is a primarily a middle and upper-class residential area.

Travelers are lured to San Borja, to see the Museo de la Nación, the country’s largest and best museum. Other attractions include the pre-Inca ruins of Huaca San Borja, the National Library and cultural centers. San Borja offers hotels and restaurants for travelers with a deeper pocket.

Other neighborhoods in Lima: Central Lima, Callao, Chorrillos, Barranco, Miraflores, San Isidro, Lima Airport and Pueblo Libre.
