Lima is the capital and the largest city of Peru. It is located in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurin rivers, in the central coastal part of the country, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Lima’s beaches, located along the northern and southern ends of the city, are heavily visited during the summer. Restaurants, clubs and hotels serve the beachgoers. The archeological site Huaca Pucllana is a great adobe and clay pyramid located in the Miraflores district, built from seven staggered platforms. It served as an important ceremonial and administrative center for the advancement of the Lima culture.
