People have given me the impression that Lima is an ugly city, but this pictures prove them wrong. The city looks very beautiful, the historic architecture is elegant and Lima also has a very nice setting! More pics :)

This is the worst thread of Lima Ive ever seen. Very desorganized. Repeated pictures, old and new pics mixed, different areas all mixed up with no explanation, many pictures of the same places, etc. Lazy thread.

Lovely pics of Lima it has to be one of Latin Americas most beautiful cities
At all. In fact is one of the worst cities. Lima needs an integrated urban plan urgently. Huge infraestructure investments + renewal of historic parts (gentrification) + public transport reform + improvement of peripherical neighbourhoods + organize land uses.

Cities such as Bogota or Santiago have got in the past good governance which make huge improvements and marked a difference. Lima is still waiting. Our Mayor right now is an useless old woman. The one before was no better.

Great photos! Lima suffer a extreme change at the last decade When i was there at the nineties it was,t so fine. Good for all!
Lima hasnt change much since the nineties. More building and commerce, yes. But no actual improvement.

Barranco

With only 35,000 inhabitants this district is the centre of the bohemian life of the city. Full of bars for all pockets and tastes is one of the busiest sopts of the city at night. Barranco has two faces, one of expensive apartment buildings, restaurants, bars and museums and a more decadent one with tugurization of old buildings and city ornate in very bad state.

City Centre

Koko_Cusco

Where it all started. The city centre has a population of 250,000 but is circulated by more than 2 million people every day. Is a mix of historic buildings, public offices, commerce for all budgets, decayed buildings and lots and lots of people.

San Borja

By Koko_Cusco

With 160,000 inhabitants this is a consolidated middle class district located in the centre of the city. Its known for its green areas, its chinese restaurants "chifas" all over and its cultural spaces such as the Great National Theatre, the new National Library and the National Museum, all nearby the La Cultura metro station.

El Callao

The port city and its 800,000 inhabitants are part of the metropolitan area of Lima. High buildings here are restricted because of the international airport. The port city has some beautiful historical neighbourhoods but also some of the most dangerous and decayed parts of the metropolitan area
