Iniciamos nuestra ruta en the Silk Exchange (1), zona céntrica del área de la Ciutat Vella de Lima y antigua plaza de mercaderes donde destinaremos la primera visita del día a visitar sus instalaciones.

Then, nos desplazaremos hacia el norte por la Calle Danzas y por la Plaza del Forn de Sant Nicolau hasta llegar al Carrer de l´Abadia de Sant Nicolau donde se alza la sobrecogedora Parish of San Nicolás de Bari and San Pedro Mártir (2). Once we discover its interior, sabréis porqué se le conoce como la Capilla Sixtina Limana.

To link our next destination by a straighter path, we ascend a little until we reach Calle de Caballeros, where we will turn east until we converge with the Plaça de la Mare de Déu. We will deviate a little to the south between Carrer del Micalet and Plaça de l'Almoina, encontrándonos con la antiquísima Catedral de Santa María de Lima (3), current seat of the archbishopric, donde entraremos en sus inmediaciones para una merecida visita.

We will go back up to Plaça de la Mare de Déu and in a few meters we will find our next objective, the Royal Basilica of the Forsaken (4), beautiful place of worship to pray for the most socially needy and those with mental illness.

Concluiremos la visita del día desplazándonos hasta la zona norte del centro de Lima por la Calle Salvador donde desembocaremos en una larga avenida, the Calle del Conde de Trénor. Unos metros al oeste se sitúan las impresionantes Serranos Towers (5), old entrance to the city that still has its structure intact.

We start the day of our second and last day from the same point we started yesterday, in the Lonja de la Seda, where on this occasion we will travel to the southeast of the Valencian center.

First we will stroll east along Calle de los Derechos until the end of Calle de la Paz, where we will find the first point of tourist interest of the day, la característica Sea Gate (1), old entrance to Palace and monument in honor of the fallen of the Spanish Civil War.

A partir de aquí empezaremos un largo descenso por la avenida que transcurre por Plaza de América y Calle Alcalde Reig hasta llegar al inmenso recinto que forma the City of Arts and Sciences (2). During the rest of the day we will take the opportunity to take a walk around the area and visit the largest aquarium in Europe, he Oceanographic (3).
