Peru's coastal capital has a rich history and is today famed for its world-class restaurants, museums and art galleries.

Lima is now well-known for its dazzling culinary scene, with some of the best restaurants in South America serving an array of fish, seafood, traditional Andean dishes, and experimenting with Asian influences. The modern district of Miraflores offers the greatest variety of hotels, some of which overlook the beach and the Pacific Ocean. There are also good restaurants, shops and parks nearby.

Lima itself has plenty to offer to make you linger here for a day or two. Among the principal points of interest in the historical centre of the city with the Plaza Mayor, home to the three most important buildings from the past and present: the Cathedral, Presidential Palace, and City Hall. Two blocks away is the Monastery of San Francisco, a baroque-style church and convent now designated with UNESCO World Heritage status.

Lima also has a number of places to indulge in a love of art and history: the archaeological complex of the Huaca Pucllana, a pre-Inca pyramid made from mud bricks; museums of fine and contemporary art (MALI and MAC); the National Anthropology Museum; and the Larco Herrera museum, which has an extensive collection of ancient artefacts from all over Peru.
