Peru: Lima

The capital of Peru is Lima. It is by far the largest city in the country. 8.8 million people live here. In the next largest city, Arequipa, there are “only” 1 million inhabitants. Lima’s old town with many beautiful buildings from the colonial era belongs to the world heritage of UNESCO . Because so many people are moving to Lima and there is no living space, large slums have emerged on the outskirts. They are called here pueblos jóvenes , which means “young villages”.
