LIMA CITY STREETS
This is a 5 hours walk in Lima center streets.
Lima was founded in 1538, and since then, many earthquakes have happened surviving some few buildings of the first years.
Major changes appear around 1870, 1920 and 1960, years of prosperity and changes.
Since 1940 Limenians left their homes in the main city to move to the new districts of San Isidro, Miraflores and Barranco, places that were used years before for second homes, farms and summer homestays.
Since 1970 the inhabitants of the city center have been immigrants, filling the old big luxury houses with dozens of families. Few changes have been made since then, having these last 20 years intended to recover the architectural heritage.
