As a peruvian living in America, talking about my city and my country in a conversation is not unusual. I’ve been avoiding to talk about this subject in the blog though, but I came across some beautiful pictures taken by talented people, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to share a little bit about my country and also share the work of photography. Hope you enjoy the tour!
Let’s start with Peru’s Capital, Lima.
Lima is the capital and largest city of Peru. It is located in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurín rivers, on a coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It forms a contiguous urban area with the seaport of Callao. Lima is the 5th largest city in Latin America, behind Mexico City, São Paulo, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro.
Lima was founded by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro on January 18, 1535, as La Ciudad de los Reyes, or “The City of Kings.” It became the most important city in the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru and, after the Peruvian War of Independence, was made the capital of the Republic of Peru. Today around one-third of the Peruvian population lives in the metropolitan area.
