Introduction to Lima
A culturally rich yet modern city on the rise, Lima has an edge worth exploring. Its raw vibe mixed with its growing sense of pride is sure to make this once-Spanish capital of the viceroyalty a memorable and worthwhile stop in your Peruvian vacation itinerary. The capital city is a vital part of what defines Peru today. With a population of more than eight million - about one-third Peru's population - and as the seat of the national government and the headquarters of most industry, Lima thoroughly dominates Peru's political and commercial life. The country's best museums, restaurants, and nightlife are here, and many of the classic colonial buildings in the old centro are being successfully refurbished to preserve the country’s history for later generations of residents and tourists alike.
Even if you have only a day or two for Lima, the city's numerous art and archaeology museums serve as perfect introductions to the rich history and culture that you will encounter elsewhere in the country. If you have the chance to indulge in a tour of colonial Lima, dine at a fantastic criollo (creole) restaurant, soak up some energetic nightlife and browse the country's best shops; you will undoubtedly come away from Lima pleasantly surprised by what you find.
