The Plaza Mayor (Plaza de Armas) (walking tour)
Located in the heart of Lima's Historic Center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this central square, known as the Plaza Mayor, or Plaza de Armas, is one of Lima's most photogenic attractions. Your walking tour will showcase its many awe-inspiring heritage structures. The Government Palace, commissioned by Francisco Pizarro in 1535, anchors the north side of the plaza. The Casa del Oidor is resplendent with colonial balconies, and the grand colonial Archbishop's Palace delights with its granite façade. The Cathedral of Lima sits pretty, dominated by two soaring towers and three massive gateways. See the Palace of the Union, the neo-colonial Municipal Palace, and the sparkling Central Fountain, which anchors it all.
What you will see along the way:

Lose yourself in the stunning beauty of the Spanish colonial architecture and the many amazing structures that surround this historic square. Plaza de Armas, or the Plaza Mayor, is the unofficial epicenter of activity in this vibrant capital. You'll also see the San Francisco Monastery, considered to be the most important religious monument of Lima, and the Convent of Santo Domingo. Nearby, 18th century Osambela House is one of the city's most striking buildings and captures the cultural and historical heritage of Lima.
