Lima is the capital and the biggest city of Peru. It is spotted in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurín streams, in the focal seaside piece of the nation, ignoring the Pacific Ocean. Together with the seaport of Callao, it structures an adjoining urban region known as the Lima Metropolitan Area. With a populace of very nearly 10 million, Lima is the most crowded metropolitan region of Peru, and the third biggest city in the Americas (as characterized by “city fitting”).
Lima was established by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro on January 18, 1535, as Ciudad de los Reyes. It turned into the capital and most critical city in the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru. Emulating the Peruvian War of Independence, it turned into the capital of the Republic of Peru. Today, around 33% of the Peruvian populace exists in the metropolitan territory.
