Lima, the capital of Peru, still has colonial traces of its past, unlike most cities in Latin America. It is attractive and stately, but modern and exciting at the same time. It is a South American capital by the sea that offers beautiful beaches and a generous gastronomy. Tourists around the world come to try the famous national dish: ceviche, but we cannot ignore causa, papa rellena, lomo saltado, anticuchos or aji de gallina, among other delicious dishes. There is a hint of past and present in its modern hotels, bars, casinos, restaurants and impressive historic monuments and museums.
