About City  About Lima
Universidad de Lima is situated in the capital city of Peru.  Founded as Ciudad de los Reyes (City of the Kings) on January 18, 1535, Lima became a center of commercial and cultural activity during colonial times. Today, it is a modern city in constant growth that also maintains the heritage of its historic center, which boasts churches, museums, and archaeological sites.

The country of Peru is located on the central western coast of South America, facing the Pacific Ocean.  The Andean Mountains run through its territory from north to south, dividing the land into three distinct geographical regions: the coast, the mountains, and the Amazon jungle.  The fusion of ancient cultures and a pattern of constant migration throughout its history has resulted in a culturally-rich, diverse country.  A variety of natural scenery, modern life, and cultural attractions make Peru one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the world.  Exchange students typically take advantage of their time in Peru by visiting many attractions throughout the country, including Machu Picchu, the Amazon jungle, and Lake Titicaca.
