A Lesser Known Peru Culture Tour

A Lesser Known Peru Culture Tour

Most people think of Peruvian culture as being synonymous with Machu Picchu and the Incas. However, there were advanced cultures in Peru before the Incas arrived, as can be seen in the impressive archaeological sites north of Lima.

Colonial Architecture in Lima

Although there are other Peruvian cities where one can see Spanish Colonial architecture, some of the best examples can be found in Lima. Of these, three of the most impressive are the Cathedral, the San Francisco Monastery and the Palacio de Torre Tagle.

Construction on the cathedral, located on the main plaza in downtown Lima, was begun in 1535. Francisco Pizarro himself laid down the first stone of the original structure. Since then, it has gone through a number of reconstructions but maintains the original colonial baroque architecture. The vaults were rebuilt more than once, twice due to earthquake damage.

Right near the cathedral, the San Francisco Monastery is another fine example of Colonial architecture, in this case, Neoclassical. It houses a world-renowned library and a collection of religious art. The highlight of this building are the catacombs below which include an ossuary. They are purported to connect to catacombs beneath other churches, including the cathedral.

Also on the plaza is the Palacio de Gobierno or Government Palace which was renovated in 1937 on the site of Pizarro’s home. Before being rebuilt, the original structure had more or less been devastated. Although not completely a colonial style structure, many examples of that style exist within it.

Located a couple of blocks away from the main plaza, the Palacio de Torre Tagle was built in the Baroque style in the early 1700s. Although it is not typically open to the public, as it is used as the Foreign Affairs Ministry, appointments can sometimes be made for viewing it. The … READ MORE -->

Ever Use a Concierge? You Should!

Ever Use a Concierge? You Should!

A concierge is someone who can take care of things for you- in the normal sense that entails running errands, making appointments for personal needs, getting hard to find items, tickets and other perks that wealthy people enjoy. What was once out of reach for most people is now at your fingertips.

Take a vacation with your family to a far off location and you have little knowledge of where to eat, what to see, maybe even how to get around. You can ask a stranger for their advice but how reliable is the information that you are getting from them? A concierge can provide reliable information from reputable sources and will have access to the internet allowing answers to just about anything you could ask them. Tickets to an event, dinner recommendations and reservations, tee times and reservations at the nearest or best golf course, driving directions, personal shopping support, movie reviews and times, nightlife information… there is little that a concierge cannot do for you.

So how do you get access to one and how much can it cost? There are several professional services available, but anyone can have access to one if they joined certain travel and vacation clubs. You get a phone number to call and are greeted by name by the person ready to assist you. The best part is that it is included in your membership on an unlimited basis- it is like having your own personal concierge for all your needs twenty four hours a day, year round at no extra cost. If you get your own travel booking site (an option available to you as a member), anyone who uses your site for their travel booking gets access to a concierge during their travel for thirty minutes- that would give them several … READ MORE -->
