THE REBIRTH OF LIMA

Plaza Italia

On the eighth block of Jirón Huanta, Plaza Italia (previously known as Santa Ana) was also recently inaugurated, making it the fourth most important renovation project undertaken by the present city fathers.

Center of hospitality and worship, with a butcher's shop and a strect market, setting for fiestas, serenades and strolls, the Plaza Italia representad one of the spaces most important for those who lived in the Barrios Altos section.

However these spaces, now fully restored, are only some of the attractions for tourists in Lima. The convents, churches and parishes had a very important role in the conformation of the city and are still today places that merit a visit. On Jirón Junin, for example, is Lima's finest, most important architectural grouping: the square, convent and church of San Francisco.

The Plaza de Acho, a handsome amphitheater inaugurated in 1768 in the days of Viceroy Amat, was considered in its heyday to be the world's biggest bull-fighting ring.

In the Rimac section, very close to Acho, are the arches of the Paseo de Aguas or Water Walk and, at its far end, the Alameda de los Descalzos, typical spot of old Lima, leading to the famous convent and church of the same name.

At the corner of Camaná and Conde de Superunda is the convent and church of Santo Domingo, founded on the same day as the city of Kings (Lima, at Epiphany) and therefore the oldest. One of the most luxurious convents of Lima, that of the church of San Agustín with its imposing churrigueresque doorway, lies a scant two blocks from Santo Domingo.

Among the many monuments of tourist interest in this impressive historic city, other places that must be visited are the museums of Art, of the Holy Inquisition, of the Cathedral, of the Instituto Riva Aguero, and the churches of La Merced, San Pedro and Las Nazarenas, and the Palace of Torre Tagle, today headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
