I love downtown Lima

As I walk around the narrow streets of the historical center of Lima, I discover and enjoy its appealing and special architecture.

Magnificent convents such as the San Francisco, and beautiful old colonial houses such as Osambela are just samples of why downtown Lima was declared part of the list of World Heritage Centers by Unesco.

  1. You will find not only carriage horse but also a picturesque train as well as double-deck bus in order to sightseeing downtown Lima.

  2. Wow, so beautiful. Thanks for sharing your pictures and letting me “travel” with you for a little while there. I love all the color… and I’m particularly fond of the carriage horse that kept popping up! 🙂

  3. Yes, the architecture is just special, but there is much more around downtown. Soon!!!
