General Information about Lima, Peru, for Meeting Planners
We’ve gathered a little basic information about Lima, Peru for the convention planner: Lima is nicknamed the City of Kings, or Ciudad de los Reyes, having been established by the Spanish Conquistadores in the mid-1500s. The venerable city has spread out from its central Old Lima area over the centuries and today, only about a third of its citizens live within its metropolis. The beautiful city is a fascinating repository of history and architecture, where Spanish Colonial merges with Incan landmarks to provide the flavor and character of a remarkable, bustling community that overlooks the sparkling Pacific Ocean.
