About Lima

It may not look much more than a desert city at first but the appeal of Lima lies in its hidden treasures, from the country's finest museums to the many colonial buildings located in the historic UNESCO-listed centre. Pre-Colombian temples stand amid stately colonial mansions and the wealth of archaeological remains on display is nothing short of staggering. The city’s museums rate highly as must-see attractions for the sheer size of their exhibits and the insight provided into the various civilisations of Peru. Other sights include the canary-coloured Franciscan monastery and church, famed for its catacombs lined with the bones of an estimated 70,000 burials, and Puruchuco, the site where 2,000 excellently preserved mummies were unearthed from the large Inca cemetery. Further out of town is Pachacamac, an archaeological complex of a pre-Colombian citadel with palaces and temple pyramids.
