Lima, the capital of Peru, has one of the richest histories in the American continent. Explore the city of Lima in this unique historic walking tour.

Begin your day in Lima’s Main Square (Plaza Mayor) where you will meet your guide and continue visiting the most historic buildings in the city, such as the Government Palace, Lima’s Cathedral and the Church of Santa Rosa.

With this guided tour around Lima, you will see places and monuments such as:

Lima's Plaza Mayor: Considered the place where the city was born, it is probably the most important place to visit in the Peruvian capital

Government Palace: This place, also known as House of Pizarro, is the residence of the Peruvian president and the main government building in the country

Cathedral of Lima: The Basilica of Lima is a Roman Catholic church built from 1535 with a very colonial façade

Monastery of San Francisco: Also known in English as Saint Francis Monastery, is one of the most impressive structures in the Peruvian capital and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Santo Domingo Basilica and Convent: This group of architectural religious buildings are also considered World Heritage and National Cultural Heritage sites since 1972. Here is where the first university in Amercia, the San Marcos University, started working.

Santa Rosa Church: More than a church, it is considered a sanctuary, because here is the place where Isabel Flores de Oliva (Santa Rosa de Lima), was born and raised.

Take a look at the impressive architecture the city preserves and don't miss any of the most important highlights of Lima with our private walking tour.
