Districts of Lima: Lince – A place to discover

Lince is located on the south side of the Cercado district of Lima. It’s so small that you crossed it before you realized you were there. A pity, because the district is best known for its well-preserved Art Deco architecture from the 30s.

Lince is a district that belongs to the inhabitants. This does not mean that it is a quiet district, but it is too central, because there, the locals can experience a lot and, above all, live at moderate prices. For travelers who want to discover as much of Lima as possible, the district is the right place, because the central location makes all other interesting parts of the city easily accessible. To see what the district does, you just have to find out.

Above all, the inhabitants of Lince, called Linceños, are proud of their parks, such as the Castilla Mariscal Park, the Clemente Revilla Park, the Fireman’s Park or the San Juan Bosco Park. And why not? The beautifully landscaped areas offer a change from the hustle and bustle of the big city, here you are and you sit or talk for a while.

Museums in Lince

Although Lince is surrounded by districts with many museums, there is only one thing worth seeing in the district: are you interested in art? Then the Fernando Saldías Díaz Art Museum is just what you are looking for. Here you will find paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as contemporary Peruvian archaeological finds and ceramics.
