A nice looking plaza to hang out with lots of restaurants bordering the central portion. You can see a lot of historical architecture and enjoy people watching. When I visited last in Jan 2014, they had a festival going on!Recommended for:Local Culture

Plaza Mayor or Plaza de Armas is a very beautiful spanish colonial plaza. Here you find the Cathedral of Lima and the Government Palace. I would say it is one of the top three things to see while staying in Lima.

The Plaza Mayor or the Plaza de Armas as it is popularly called is the very heart and soul of Lima, Peru. It was started in the early 16th century by Lima's founder and the leader of the Spanish Conquistadores, Francisco Pizzaro.

The Plaza de Armas of Lima, this central part of the city is always bustling with life! This is also the hub of cultural, religious, and political activities. We enjoyed stroll down the side pedestrian streets that are lined with stores and local fares just around the corner. We almost need not go any where else to experience the city...almost.

The Plaza Mayor de Lima is the most important Spanish colonial plaza. It's where the government palace is located, as well as the Lima Cathedral, the City Hall and the Archbishop's Palace. The whole square was recently restored to look like its original days and they did a very good work, specially with the Spanish wooden balconies.
