Full description
Your tour will begin at Larcomar, the city's most exclusive shopping center located in front of the Pacific Ocean. This impressive complex boasts indoor and outdoor areas, including a cinema, a bowling alley, a food court, a museum, tourist shops, book stores, clothing stores, and electronics stores.

Following this, the tour makes its way to Huaca Pucllana, a pre-Hispanic pyramid 25 meters high belonging to the Lima culture and built between 200 and 800 A.D. Located in the Miraflores district, here you can observe squares, ramps and stairways, plus rooms with objects that in the past were offered to the deities.

You will then stop at the Main Square, located in front of the Presidential Palace, the Lima Municipality and the Archbishop's Palace. These are all examples of beautiful colonial buildings that are an important part of the city's identity. A few streets away, you will visit the Church of Santo Domingo, one of the oldest viceregal constructions that stands out for its collection of old books, among other things. Your tour will then conclude at either your hotel, at Larcomar or the Indian Market.
