Plaza Mayor And Surroundings, Lima: 41 reviews and 76 photos
The Plaza Mayor was created by Fransisco Pizarro.
On the sides of the plaza are:
- The Presidential Palace
- The Cathedral
- The Archbishop´s Palace
- The Municipality building.
Some years ago the plaza and surrounding streets were filled with merchants, but they have now been prohibited to be there.
The two-storey balconies and galleries have no connection with local tradition and are purely arbitrary. But the plaza still conservs some of its charm from the past.
The fountain in the middle is from 1650.
The place has also been called Plaza de Armas.
