Lima is not too well known for being a holiday destination and is more famous for being the capital city of Peru; also for its extreme size. The flat residential area is home to almost a third of the country’s entire population.
But all that is changing for Lima, the city that was once called La Ciudad de los Reyes or ‘The City of The Kings’ by the Spanish conquistadores. Lima is positioned on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, but it is not the beaches that are attracting new visitors. The array of beautiful valleys, hills and mountains that surround the city of Lima tower as high as 500m above sea level and were once inhabited by the mysterious Inca people. It is the ruins of their buildings that have kept archaeologists busy for many years and they are now luring tourists back to the city for countless hours of exploration and discovery.
