LIMA

CITY OF KINGS

Perched on cliffs overlooking the Pacific, Lima is the capital of Peru and the most economically important city of the country. It was founded on January 18, 1535. Known from the its earliest days as the City of Kings, Lima was the capital of the Viceroyalty of Peru and the largest and most important city in South America at the time.

Lima’s historic center is home to treasures of colonial and republican architecture and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. In recent years, the city has become best known as one of the world’s great culinary capitals, drawing visitors from the furthest reaches of the globe to sample this incredibly varied and powerfully delicious cuisine.

CUISINE

Lima is known worldwide as the culinary capital of America much loved for its incredible variety of dishes including the emblematic ceviche; or the tiradito, similar to the ceviche, but usually served with a creamy sauce and with the fish cut into carpaccio thin slices; probably the nations favorite dish, the lomo saltado, a beef stir-fry with fries; aji de gallina, a creamy chicken dish and anticuchos, slices of beef heart marinated and barbecued on a skewer. Unmisseable as well are pisco cocktails, first among them being the pisco sour, or the classic desserts like picarones, sweet potato and pumpkin donuts or the suspiro limeño, a rich caramel-like dessert topped with merengue.
