Lima, Peru Travel Itineraries, Things to Do, and Places to Stay

After its founding by Francisco Pizarro in 1535, Lima (originally named 'La Ciudad de los Reyes') soon became the commercial and administrative center of the Spanish Empire in South America, bringing a period of prosperity to the city until an earthquake in 1746 destroyed all but 20 houses.

Following this devastation, the opportunity was taken to elaborately rebuild the city. Today's wide streets, huge plazas, and old houses with ornately carved balconies are a legacy of this period.

Weather: Lima is dry and temperate. Characterized by a winter that occurs from April to December and is cloudy and cool. The coastal region also has a summer that occurs from January to March and is hot and dry. Check the weather in Lima now.
