Museums and galleries
Anyone interested in the history of Lima, the Cercado de Lima is the right place. Because here are the museums and galleries that contain the past of Lima, but also the art museums. One of them and one of the most visited museums in Lima is the Museum of the Inquisition and the Congress. In the rooms you will find a strange mixture of torture chambers and sumptuously furnished meeting rooms. On the contrary, the less macabre attend the gallery of the Municipal Palace of the Plaza Mayor, where some 600 works of the most important Peruvian artists of the last two centuries are exhibited. But maybe you do not want to spend the whole day indoors. Then it only goes through the Exhibition Park. There you can take a walk through the gardens, admire the buildings that are exhibited and, for the more thirsty, stand on the grounds of the Palace of the Exhibition, where the oldest art museum in Lima, Mali, is waiting.
