Unfortunately when I visited, it was cloudy and rainy. And yet, you could still make out the light that was emitted from the status at night. The bus took quite awhile to get up the slope, but once there, the status is humungous!
Would like to come back one day just to get the views that I'm seeing in the other postcards :)Recommended for:

There's no better way to get a feel for how expansive (and sandy) Lima really is than by viewing it over 360 degrees on the top of San Cristobal Hill. You'll need to arrange a tour from the Plaza de Armas downtown or hire a taxi to get you here, but it's worth the trip.Recommended for:

This lookout atop one of the largest mountains within Lima itself, you can see a large proportion of Lima (360 degree views).
You will need to get a taxi or tour to the top, as the road to the summit passes through some unsafe areas, but the view is very well worth it.
The photo included with this is NOT of the mirador in Lima (it's from one of the same name in SANTIAGO CHILE). Lima's has a giant cross at the summit.
