Lima and the Desert Coast

Peru’s capital Lima was named the City of Kings by its founder Francisco Pizarro in 1535 and is nestled between the Pacific Ocean and Andes mountains. On first impressions, Lima is often overlooked, but beneath the high rise buildings is an interesting colonial centre declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988 with finely preserved architecture.

Lima is also filled with many prestigious museums that offer an insight into the country’s fascinating history and the Larco Musuem is well worth a visit. Lima is also fast becoming the gastronomic capital of the Americas and the mix of ingredients used hail from its rich Andean, European, Oriental and African heritage. The food revolution has sparked a rise in world class restaurants in the city.
