Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Lima, Peru your home away from home

Lima is on the central western coast of Peru. This bustling capital city has some interesting museums, historical sites and a variety of shops and restaurants. It also has a beach which is best enjoyed between December and April when the coastal fog disappears on sunny days. This fascinating city is mainly Spanish speaking with few people speaking English.

Things to Do in Lima, Peru

Exploring the city sights is the main activity for most people enjoying a holiday rental in Lima. Take a guided tour in English of some of the main sights to get the most out of the city’s amazing history and culture. Shopping is a pleasure along the busy streets with bargains to be had in leather goods and woollen items such as scarves and sweaters. Artists display their paintings along the pavement, which make lovely souvenirs. Eating out in Lima is a real delight for food lovers. Freshly caught seafood is served with delicious creamy sauces and fresh vegetables in the many restaurants which line the streets. Sampling local Peruvian coffee in a local café is another delightful experience to enjoy from your Lima holiday apartment. For relaxation, head for the Costa Verde as the sweep of sandy beaches is known. Sunbathing and swimming in the rather chilly sea can be enjoyed along with crowds of locals.

Places to Visit in Lima, Peru

The main square in Lima is the Plaza de Armas which is centred around a huge 17th century bronze fountain. On each side of the plaza are the city’s most impressive buildings: The splendid baroque Governor’s Palace with uniformed guards; the 1564 Cathedral and adjoining Archbishop’s Palace which still stands after many earthquakes; the Town Hall and the Club de la Union where politicians and professionals gather to dine are all worth a photograph. A guided tour is the best way to appreciate the fine frescoes and the extensive catacombs in the Iglesia de San Francisco, which has some gruesome skeletal remains. Lima has several excellent museums including the Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology in the Plaza Bolivar, with a superb collection of pottery and textiles. The Gold Museum has a private collection of fine artifacts and the Museum of the Inquisition still has its torture chambers and dungeons.
