The Plaza de Armas de Lima, widely regarded as the city's core, is one of the most beautiful plazas in Lima if not all of Peru. As Lima's birthplace, the plaza is home to some of the city's most prominent structures. The Government Palace, the Cathedral of Lima, the Archbishop's Palace of Lima, the Municipal Palace, and the Palace of the Union are all located here. With so many historical buildings in one plaza, it's easy to see why the Plaza de Armas de Lima is one of the city's most popular tourist attractions.

Moreover, the old Convent of Saint Francis is known to be a home of a fine religious art museum that preserves some masterpieces, which is indeed one of the best places in Lima to take photos.

Where To Eat In Lima

If you like your food, Lima is a gastronomic delight. If you're still not convinced, the Fourth International Summit of Gastronomy Madrid Fusión in 2006 formally designated Lima as the "Gastronomy Capital of the Americas." Food is generally cost-effective, delicious, and widely available from numerous bars and restaurants. Ceviche is a Peruvian national dish that is sold in cevicheras. Ceviche is an acidic dish, and many locals avoid eating it late in the day because it can upset the stomach, particularly Western stomachs.

Central is currently ranked as the world's sixth-best restaurant, so make your reservations here in advance. The Michelin-starred restaurant offers a 16-course tasting menu that travels through various altitudes. Its menu features a variety of seafood, meats, corn, and potatoes that highlight regional flavors. The wine and cocktail menus are also excellent. On the other hand, Mercado 28 is a local market with a variety of kiosks, so a wide range of tastes can be satisfied. Vendors offer everything from Amazonian cuisine to Sushi. Nikkei cuisine is influenced by Asian cuisine and infused with Peruvian flavors. The atmosphere is also very lively, with TV screens all over the place showing soccer games. Arroz con Pato, rice with duck, and Lomo Saltado, a common beef dish in Peru, are two must-try dishes.

Best Time To Visit Lima

Lima, on a desert strip between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains, is Egypt's second-driest capital after Cairo. With a desert climate, there is no bad time to visit Lima; however, if you want to avoid crowds, avoid the peak tourist season, which runs from May to August. Lima's summer months, from December to April, are ideal for a visit, with sunny skies, cool nights, and a more authentic feel.

Conclusion

Overall, Lima is indeed a fantastic city for food, history, and sightseeing. Lima's residents are also friendly and eager to offer advice. Hope this article will guide you on where are the best places to visit, take Lima pictures, where is the best place to eat, and as well as when is the best time to visit Lima.
