The second day of my trip to Lima, Peru found me wandering around the birthplace of Lima. Once used as a market, bull fighting ring and city gallows it is now a bustling area for local and tourists to enjoy the city center.
Plaza Mayor de Lima
The beginnings of the plaza started in 1523. Today, it’s a busy park with water fountains and sitting areas.
The plaza is the central point to many important historical and current data destinations like:
- The Government Palace
- Case del Oidor
- Archbishop’s Palace of Lima
- Catherdal of Lima
- Headquarters of the Caretas magazine
- Olaya passage
- Jiron de la Union
- Club of the Union
- Municipal Palace of Lima
- Park of the flag.
In every direction there is so much history and beautiful Spanish-influenced architecture. It’s a great place to visit and take in the history and beautiful architecture of Lima, Peru.
