LIMA CITY & REGION
Lima City is a metropolis with more than 10 million inhabitants and was founded in 1535 by the Spanish Conqueror Francisco Pizarro, who called it the City of Kings. Lima was one of the most important cities in South America at the time and to date that can be clearly seen in the many beautiful colonial buildings. However, much has changed since the Spanish colonial period and much of the glamour and splendor has been lost, yet Lima still has a lot to offer.
