The City of the Kings

The City of the Kings

Lima3 Days / 2 NightsCultural

The city of the kings tour, is now Lima quickly developed as the capital of Spain in South America, giving the city’s name a new layer of meaning, while also complicating the connotation of the City of Kings. Lima was considered to be loyal to the crown and was the last country in South America to claim independence. While the city was founded as “the City of the Kings,” the name did not stick as Pizarro had hoped.

Lima is known as the gastronomical capital of the Americas. Its historic center is part of the Unesco World Heritage list, it offers a vibrant cultural scene, numerous museums, and churches, and boasts sandy beaches. For all these reasons, it is a popular city to explore amongst tourists, as every traveler can find what they are after in the city!
