Lima has many routes for sightseeing: there are so many things worth seeing. We are suggesting a few alternatives, depending on where you are staying at.
If you are near the Downtown area, you will enjoy a walk along the old Lima streets, starting of course at the Plaza Mayor, the place where the Spanish conquistadores founded Lima: a few blocks away you will find the beautiful San Pedro church and San Francisco church and convent. There are many examples of traditional colonial architecture there, but uf you feel like walking a little more, go to Barrio Chino, where you can finish your route while enjoying a Chinese style meal.
On the way back to Miraflores you will find the Magic Water Circuit; once in Miraflores you can walk to the Costa Verde marina, to enjoy a view of the beaches and the paragliders that usually do their practice flights there. Following the marina you will soon get to Barranco, the traditional artists’ town, where you can see some beautiful places such as the “Puente de los Suspiros”.
Outside Miraflores and Barranco there’s still a lot of Lima for some sightseeing: for example, Pueblo Libre, another historic district, with traditional houses, some museums, and lovely little places like its own Plaza Mayor.
