Our excursion presents the best combination of the various attractions of Lima in its three historical periods: pre-Hispanic, colonial and contemporary. In Lima, various pre-Columbian cultures that date back thousands of years have been developed. It was part of the Inca Empire until its foundation by the Spanish Francisco Pizarro on January 18, 1535 as capital of the Viceroyalty of New Castile of the Spanish Empire. During this guided tour we will make a trip through its millenary history.
ANCESTRAL LIMA. In the Huaca Pucllana, archaeological site built in the 4th century A.D. We will have a panoramic view of this magnificent ceremonial and administrative center considered by the Incas as a sacred town. We will know the way of life and the rituals of its ancestral inhabitants and the typical pyramidal building characteristic of the sacred and venerated pre-Hispanic constructions of the coast of Peru.
COLONIAL LIMA. The Viceroyalty of Peru was the most important in the Spanish Empire and Lima was its capital. In its Historic Center, the architecture and urban layout of that period stand out, in old streets with colonial mansions of Moorish-style balconies. Our tour includes the Paseo de la República, Plaza San Martín and the Plaza Mayor, with its distinctive buildings: Government Palace, the Archbishop’s Palace, the Cathedral Basilica and the Municipal Palace.
In the historic center we visit one of its most beautiful buildings, the Museum of the Central Reserve Bank, where you can appreciate the Treasures of Peru: a select exhibition of gold, ceramic and textile objects from various pre-Columbian cultures, from their origins to the Incas, which captivates and impresses our visitors.
We enter the monumental Convent of San Francisco, which constitutes the largest sample of colonial religious art in America. The Choral Room and the Library of the Monks, the Sacristy, with its collection of canvases by Zurbarán and Rivera are appreciated. The Great Courtyard of the Main Cloister, finely decorated with 16th-century Sevillian tiles, its beautiful Moorish arches and the Underground Crypts, known as the Catacombs, where you will feel the presence of the colonial past.
CONTEMPORARY LIMA. View of the most traditional residential areas of the capital: El Olivar de San Isidro, Miraflores and Larco Mar, distinctive tourist center of Lima today and a privileged point to appreciate a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean.
