In Rímac there are some places of interest where you can spend several hours, if not all day. At the top is the San Cristobal hill, the mountain of Lima to call. From several points in the same Lima, stands out from the colorful collections of houses on its slopes. However, it is better if you get on a bus to the mountain from the Plaza de Armas and the Plaza del Gobierno to see Lima from above, a strange pleasure that is worth it especially at night.
Or take a walk through the Alameda de los Descalzos, a walk lined with trees and statues that lead to the Convent of the Descalzos. The current design dates back to the 19th century, the park-type complex is a haven of peace in the hectic city and a real eye-catcher.
Also worth seeing is the monastery. During a tour you can visit the facilities, the monastery also has an extensive library. In the adjoining museum you can see about 300 works from the schools of Lima, Cuzco and Quito, which decisively influenced Peruvian art.
For those who are interested in bullfighting, not only the bullring, but also the Bullfighting Museum of the Plaza de Acho is the right place. Something quite different, but what you should not miss is the Peñas, of which there are so many in Rímac: celebrations with Creole music, dancing, singing, joy that will enchant the day and shorten the hours of the night. In a rock, you will get close to the essence of the country, in a relaxed atmosphere you can make friends quickly.
