Lima, the capital of Peru, lies on the country's arid Pacific coast.

Though its colonial center is preserved, it's a bustling metropolis and one of South America’s largest cities. It's home to the Museo Larco collection of pre-Columbian art and the Museo de la Nación, tracing the history of Peru’s ancient civilizations.

The Plaza de Armas and the 16th-century cathedral are the heart of old Lima Centro.
