THE BAY OF LIMA
THE BAY OF LIMA
Since Lima was founded the world trade started and continued at Callao Port, the place where the immigrants arrived and lived until the first years of the republic. The earthquake and tsunami of 1746 erased Callao and Lima lost 80% of their colonial buildings.
After many years Lima city needed to get expanded, so, high-class inhabitants moved during the beginning of the 20th century to the new villages of Magdalena, Miraflores, Barranco, and Chorrillos, places that became not as far as years before thanks to the new roads, cars and trolley railroads, leaving their former homes. Then they follow the midclass letting the main city as a business and government place.
