About Rímac

Located north of the centre of Lima across the Rimac River, Rimac is a culturally-rich neighbourhood with authentic creole restaurants, colonial architecture and some of South America’s most famous sights. A visit to Rimac is a trek back in time to Lima’s fascinating past of bullfighting, convents and penas.

Things to do

The Plaza de Acho is a must-see attraction during your Rimac holiday. An exquisite architectural sight, the famous bullfighting ring is considered to be the oldest in South America. Stop in at the Museo Taurino de la Plaza de Acho to learn more about bullfighting.

Go for a walk along the tree-lined Alameda de los Descalzos promenade, which takes you to the 16th-century Convent of the Descalzos. Here you can view over 300 religious paintings, along with sculptures and an old wine cellar. Break up your sightseeing with delicious creole cuisine in Lima’s best-known clubs and penas, where live musicians come together to entertain and mingle.

Don’t forget to visit the towering Cerro San Cristobal, a 400-metre-high hill with panoramic views of Lima and the South Pacific Ocean, as well as a giant cross, museum and restaurant. More memorable moments await at the Paseo de Aguas, a boulevard with a multi-coloured pool and arches of cascading water that create the Tunnel of Wishes.

If you’re heading back into the centre of Lima for more sightseeing, cross the river using Puente de Piedra (Bridge of Stone), which is said to have been partially built out of sea bird eggs. Lima itself offers a number of excellent holiday experiences, such as laser light shows at Reserve Park and the Baroque-style Monastery of San Francisco.

Getting around

Rimac is a small suburb easily navigated on foot or by using the local buses. Take the gas-powered Metropolitano buses for fast transport around the rest of Lima or catch the Metro train line, which services a number of areas around the city.
