Strolling through the streets of Lima can sometimes feel like a journey back in time. The old town of Lima was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991 because of its well-preserved colonial buildings.
Especially in the south of the city, in the affluent Miraflores district and the further south located Barranco district, there is a rich and diverse range of restaurants, street cafes and bars. the Ther internationally renowned Peruvian gastronomy is particularly popular with foreign visitors: Peru won the prize for the world's best culinary destination at the World Travel Awards for eight years in a row until 2019 – numerous top chefs are at home in Lima.
The Peruvian cuisine is characterized by dishes with fish and seafood but also meat, as well as interesting combinations in general. Ceviche, a delicious dish made from fresh raw fish, is world famous.
One of the most important museums in the city is the archaeological museum Rafael Larco Herrera with its famous private collection of pre-Hispanic art. Peru's National Museum is one of the largest museums in South America and definitely worth a visit as well. The main sights in town are the large Plaza de Armas and the nearby town hall, the presidential palace from 1938 and several religious buildings from the 16th and 17th centuries.
