Lined with boutiques and stores for window-shopping, restaurants and cafes for bar-hoppers, and thronged with locals for people-watching, taking a stroll along this atmospheric thoroughfare is the best way to experience Lima in a nutshell.
Taking up five blocks of prime city-center real estate, Lima’s most important boulevard was planned by Pizarro back in 1535, when the city was founded.
A walk along this thoroughly commercialized car-free route takes you past City Hall, monuments, squares and the La Merced Cathedral, with its pretty square in front.
I was the only one on this tour and it was great.
Excellent and very good. Would recommend this tour to everyone.
Only the two of us but the guide did a good job. Markets were closing so we did not get to see all the food stands. Suggest another day not a Sunday to do this tour.
