Lima was founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizzaro as the capital of the Spanish viceroyalty of Peru. Its oldest quarter has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its high concentration of grand colonial monuments, including cobbled squares and more than 1,600 balconies dating to the 16th century. Peru gained independence from Spain in 1821, and we follow its history forward into contemporary Lima's Miraflores district to stay at a fine boutique hotel. Known for its world-class shopping and dining, theater, art galleries, gardens, flower-filled parks and beaches, Miraflores is Lima's most upscale neighborhood. A transfer to or from the airport is included.
