Plaza De Armas - Review

This is the historical centre of Lima. The city centre was founded along with the city in the year 1535. But all the old structures around the plaza were destroyed by an earthquake in the mid-eighteenth century. Now the square is ornamented by colourful flowerbeds and long-standing palm trees. It is bordered by important buildings. And in the night the plaza looks especially beautiful when these buildings are lit. Highlights include:

  • The bronze fountain
  • The Lima Cathedral
  • Government Palace
  • Jiron de la Union- a pedestrian street lined by shops and restaurants on both sides.
  • The Church of La Merced
