Peru: Lima

Visit Us

A city as huge and dynamic as Lima, City of Kings, is bound to offer something of interest to all visitors. Lovers of architecture and history will thrill to the monumental cathedral and Presidential Palace in the Plaza de Armas, and colonial wooden balconies overhanging atmospheric lanes in the spruced-up centre. But out on the Pacific coast are the smart, modern middle-class suburbs of Miraflores and Barranco, brimming with sophisticated restaurants, boutiques and live music. The traffic is horrendous, but the city has some of the Spanish Empire’s best museums; it’s well worth crossing town to find them.

Dining at the pier-based Rosa Náutica, fish specialities with Pacific rollers crashing at its diners’ feet; or the restaurant at Huaca Pucllana, a huge pre-Inca adobe pyramid in the heart of Miraflores.

What our experts say

Peruvian cuisine is known throughout South America for its ability to incorporate influences from different times and cultures. The result is a culinary palette which has a depth of taste and colour that is unrivalled in all of the Americas, and the capital is its showcase. In my opinion, Lima is easily one of the world's best places to dine.
