Lima is located on the pacific coast near the foot of the Andes. This is not only the largest metropolis of South America, but also a unique city that offers numerous entertainments and rest possibilities to its tourists. The city has carefully preserved the history of the colonial period, the period of Spanish governors and conquistadors. In Lima there are three most important buildings of their epoch. These are the municipality, government palace and cathedral with the tomb of Francisco Pisarro. All of them are located on the main square of Lima, Placa de Armas.
Other sights of this place are the monastery and church San Francisco, Museum of gold that features a great collection of gold and silver jewelry with precious stones, Museum of Ceramics of Raphael Larko Herrera, Museum of Archeology and Anthropology, and many more. The museum of ceramics exhibits several interesting collections of ceramics of pre-colonial Peru, golden and silver jewelry, ancient mummies, and a collection of Colombian erotic ceramics.
