Lima, Peru – the King of Cities.

Lima is the capital and largest city in Peru. Founded in 1535, it became the capital and most important city in the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru. It later became the capital of independent Peru. Today, about a third of Peru’s population lives in Lima’s metropolitan area, signifying the importance of the city to the country. Lima is the industrial and financial center of Peru and is home to many national companies.  Owing to colonization, immigration, and indigenous populations, Lima is a melting pot of cultures and has been strongly influenced by European, Andean, Asian, and African cultures. The city is known as the Gastronomic Capital of the Americas owing to its eclectic mix of Spanish, Andean, African, and Asian cuisines.
