Lima is one of the great metropolises of Latin America

We have dedicated much of our content to the great architecture of the Peruvian Capital (historical buildings, churches, huacas, city squares...). Today we would like to share a great publication: An Architectural and Landscape Guide for Lima & Callao.

Extract of the introduction:

Lima is one of the great metropolises of Latin America and one of the capital cities of the world that has experienced the largest growth in recent decades. Having occupied the Rímac, Chillón and Lurín valleys, its urban sprawl is now encroaching on the nearby hills and stretching towards the Pacific Ocean. This mass contains a magnificent historic centre, of Hispanic origin and inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1988; nearby, a handful of old towns and resorts, including the port of Callao; the republican and modern expansion areas; and a ring of shantytowns that has emerged as a consequence of the avalanche of recent settlers, leading to the profound transformation of the scale and appearance of the capital of Peru. Lima is now home to almost a third of the country's population.

The great guide pays tribute to the vibrant, complex and overflowing city that is Lima today, divided by both past and future. It is a contribution to its history at the beginning of the 21st century.
