Founded in 1535 by Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro, Lima represents an interesting blend of modern attractions and preserved colonial architecture, much of it clustered in the World Heritage-listed city center.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Centro Historico de Lima and San Isidro. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Playa Santa Maria del Mar and El Silencio. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Lima, explore the world behind art at Museo MATE, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica y Monasterio de Santo Domingo.
