The best things to do in Lima

The tourism industry has developed significantly in recent years, both in the capital and across the country, which means there is now an endless list of stuff to do in Lima. The city has a large heritage, and its historic center is one of the most important things to see in Lima. Part of the districts of Lima and Rimac were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, and top the list of Lima attractions.

The Basilica and Convent of San Francisco, two of the most welcoming and artistic corners of the city, are located in these districts. Nearby is also the Plaza Mayor, the main public space and one of the top attractions in Lima. All around the square you'll find the buildings of the Government Palace of Peru, the Lima Cathedral, Sagrario Church, the Archbishop's Palace of Lima, the Municipal Palace of Lima, and the Club of the Union.

Many of the places to visit in Lima are related to religion. Dominated by churches and basilicas, the Cathedral of Lima, the Basilica of San Francisco, the Sanctuary of Las Nazarenas, and Santa Baluarte Lucía are definitely highlights. Visiting the Torre Tagle Palace is another one of the things to do in Lima. It's a house built during the colonial era of Peru that serves as headquarters for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It was built with materials brought from Spain, Panama, and other countries in Latin America.

If you're still looking for what to do in Lima, you can visit the two zoos, Parque de las Leyendas and Huachipa Ecological Park, which are located east of the city in the Lurigancho-Chosica district. There are also many parks where you can partake in Lima activities, such as the Park of the Reserve, the Park of the Exposition, Campo de Marte, University Park and Mariscal Castilla Park.
