Jiron de la Union Tours

star-5
104 Reviews
Jiron de la Union
Downtown Lima’s most lively and colorful street is pedestrianized Jiron de la Union.

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.

Practical Info

Jiron de la Union is in the historic city center. The pedestrianized street runs southwest from Plaza de Armas to Plaza San Martin, linking the city’s two main squares.
Address: Jiron de la Union, Lima, Peru
