My wife and I went strolling to appreciate the environ at close range and we can confirm that indeed, the center of Lima is a Unesco world heritage site. The architecture is an excellent work of art properly preserved. The weather in September was perfect for a stroll, so take your jeans, sneakers and SLR camera. Have a great trip to the past.

The centre has been tarted up and there is more to do in restoration for sure, but it is worth a few hours walk to poke your nose into nooks and crannies.

I am very glad we visited the historic centre of Lima. It added a lot to our knowledge and anticipation of the history of the city. Most buildings are well preserved and all of them inspire awe and take you back to older times. The San Francisco Monastery impressed us. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to do a lot of walking.

The historic areas surrounding the plaza de armas is incredible. As in other places, businesses have taken over the old buildings. I recommend seeing this section lit up at night (in the well lit areas of course) and early in the morning before everyone has woken up. It is very beautiful and colorful, and although I can pass on seeing a lot of colonial architecture I was really happy I got to walk through this area several times.
