Make the most of this guided walking tour through the historic center of Lima.

Admire the Plaza de Armas -- the unofficial epicenter of activity in this vibrant capital -- with its important architectural monuments and buildings. Among these are the Archbishop of Lima's house, with its elegant balconies, Government Palace, and a magnificent bronze fountain dating from 1650. You will also see the San Francisco Monastery, considered to be the most important religious monument of Lima, and the Convent of Santo Domingo, which contains the marble tomb holding the remains of Santa Rosa de Lima. Nearby, Osambela House, built between the late 18th and early 19th centuries, is one of the city's most striking colonial buildings and captures the cultural and historical heritage of Lima.

Before concluding your visit, enjoy a delicious fruit juice at a local restaurant in the Old Town of Lima.
