Lima

Named the "city of kings" when it was founded in 1535 under the hispanic foundation, it was known as Limaq by the local natives, which means "chatty". Lima is famous for being the viceroyalty capital of Peru and one of the cities most important of South America in the spanish regime period; after its independance in 1821 the city became the republic's capital. Before this period, the Baroque and Neoclassical style took the power on the streets, impregnating those architectural styles in the main constructions. The capital counts a high variety of tourist attractions that combine history and modernity, as you can see on the Historical Center. Another strong point of Lima is the food, there are many restaurants from the 3 Peruvian regions where you can live a complete gastronomical experience, given that the population is multicultural and mostly migrant. Live Peru from one of its corners, and enjoy tasting the culture that Peru offers you!

Jauja was one of the first cities founded by the Spanish and was the capital of all the territory until 1935, the foundation date of Lima.

It was always appreciated due to its natural wealth and climate, reason why in the colonial period and after the independence, travellers worldwide came to the city to improve their respiratory problems, a fact that made of Jauja a cosmopolitan city.
