25 Photos That Will Convince You To Spend An Afternoon In Callao, LIMA (PERU)


Machu Picchu is Peru's most popular attraction. Most foreign travelers fly to Lima, stay there one night or so and head down to the south of Peru - mostly to Cusco to see the Sacred Valley, and then do the Inca Trail and end it up in one of the world's most magical and mysterious places - Machu Picchu. However, don't underestimate Peru's capital city and dedicate it a bit of your precious time. It might seem disorganized, dirty, chaotic and tricky, but it's not just that. If you move away a bit from the city centre, you will find a peaceful place with a gentle sound of waves crushing over the little coastal pebbles. When walking the streets, you will feel like being in Cuba, but it'll be Callao - Lima's hidden retreat. Have I already convinced you to make the most from your visit in Lima or you need some visual proof? I suppose it's the latter, so here you have 25 photos that will definitely convince you to spend an afternoon in Callao :)))



Nice viewpoint where you can either eat a breakfast or an afternoon snack overlooking the sea and the mountains on the other side :)








Very picturesque coast with rich water fowl







There is a nice path along the coast which offers views of the city far far away. It's well-organized and well-preserved.







Nice pebbly beach, a perfect place for meditation and a peaceful contemplation... No other words needed in this case :)









Gorgeous sunsets





And last but not least - those tremendous colonial houses that makes you feel as if you are strolling down the streets of Havana in Cuba - so colourful, nicely designed and clean.
