Culinary hotspot full of history

Experience the edifying culture of Peru. Book a flight to Lima and discover the history of the Peruvian capital. Take a stroll across Plaza Mayor or admire the Lima Metropolitan Cathedral. Take a culinary voyage of discovery in the evening and sample a ‘papa rellena’ or a ‘causa’ at the Mercado Surquillo. And while you’re there, sip a Pisco Sour, Peru’s national cocktail.

Stately building and lively squares

In Lima’s historical centre everything is within walking distance. The best place to start is Plaza Mayor, with its large fountain at the centre, and where you’ll also find Lima Metropolitan Cathedral and the stately city hall. The yellow Church of San Francisco is only a few streets away. Characteristic for this city are the beautiful wooden balconies adorning most houses. At night, visit the Circuito Mágico del Agua, a fountain show full of light and colour. Lima is the ideal destination for cultural city trips or the perfect starting point for a longer vacation in Peru. Treat yourself: book a flight to Lima now!

South American wonders

Peruvian cuisine is one of South America’s most surprising cuisines. The most commonly used ingredients are potatoes and fish. Many seafood restaurants in Lima are solely open for lunch, as local chefs only consider fish fresh enough to serve until then. The best-known seafood dish is ceviche, raw fish in lemon juice. And when you’ve eaten your fill, set off for the Nazca Lines. These mysterious sand drawings have remained preserved for centuries and can be best be viewed from the air.
