Hotels in Lima
Lima is the 'City of the Kings'. Peru's capital city shares its name with the smallest province in the country. You can visit Inca ruins at PachacÃ¡mac, the Parque Kennedy in Miraflores, or the oasis of Chirchi. You will discover there are many things to do in Lima and its environs. If you want to visit all the Lima sights, you will need to remain for more than a weekend in Lima. Lima attractions are many in number. Wander the Plaza de Arms with its Government Palace fronted by a bronze fountain. Stay to see the changing of the guard or go to admire the silver-covered altars of the Baroque Cathedral. For a touch of Lima culture visit the Museum of The Inquisition, complete with the original dungeons and torture chambers, or visit the 17th century Sanctuary of St. Rose. If you decide to go shopping in Lima, try the artisanal shops in the Plaza Major.
