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.
