With over 10 million people Lima is a very large city.Lima dates back to 1535 when it was first established

by the Spanish.Francisco Pizzaro dubbed the city Lima,City of Kings.When Peru got it’s independence in

1821 Lima became the capital.The city survived many wars and natural disasters to develop into a major

destination.Our first stop on our tour was Pachacamac Ruins which is a archeological site built between 800 and 1450 CEDSC05398

After touring the ruins we went for lunch.They had American as well as Peruvian food.Very good.

Our next stop was in Miraflores and Love Park.This park ran for miles along the ocean and had lots of

people walking running exercising and just enjoying the day.It’s a beautiful area.

Love Park 

This area reminds me of the park in Barcelona that Gaudi developed.Along the walkway is this seating area

made of mosaic.Very nice.
