El Callao – the port city near Lima

Callao, or “El Callao” is a port city in the catchment area of the Peruvian capital, Lima. Due to its proximity, but also because the airport is located here, it is often mistakenly assumed to be part of the capital, but it is far from it.

Callao is one of the most important port cities in Peru (after all, around 75% of imports and exports are made through the huge port) and, on the other, a popular destination for city dwellers and tourists . Especially the beaches of La Punta, the picturesque houses of Bellavista and, of course, the islands of the coast attract more and more visitors. And so, El Callao, which was not considered a “good area” in the past, has been remodeled in recent years and now has a new light.
