Machu Picchu was only re-discovered in 1911 by the explorer Hiram Bingham, this citadel is considered to be one of the
most extraordinary examples of landscapes architecture in the world. Located in an enclave on the saddle of a mountain
overlooking the deep canyon of the Urubamba River, in an area of lush tropical forest, it served as a place of worship, a
site for star-gazing and a private hacienda of the family of
the Inca Pachacutec. It consists of two main areas one 
agricultural, formed mainly by mountains and food stores,
and the other urban, which is noted for its sacred zone with its temples, squares and royal tombs. The stairways and
canals carved out of stone are recurrent throughout this
remarkable archaeological site.

Day 5 - Lima City Tour ( Half Day)

Post breakfast, pickup from your hotel to enjoy a morning half day sightseeing tour of Lima - L

This half-day city tour starts at Lima’s main square, where you can admire the Governmental Palace. You visit the
Cathedral, where the conqueror Francisco Pizarro is buried, and its religious museum. Then, your guide takes you to the
San Francisco Church and its monastery, which cloisters and entrance hall are embellished with authentic tiles from Seville
dating back to 1620. Also remarkable are the church’ museum, the Zubaran room, and the library. The complex
was built over underground catacombs which were used as cemeteries during colonial times.
Cathedral of Lima Construction for the cathedral began in 1535, the same year
the city of Lima was founded. Throughout the years it withstood various earthquakes and underwent a lot of
renovations. It is also where the conqueror Francisco Pizarro is buried, and the visit you will have the chance to visit its
religious museum.
Today it stands towering over Lima's main square and is one the main attraction of the colonial city center.
The San Francisco Church
The construction of the convent began in the mid-sixteenth century; today, it remains one of the most exceptional legacies
of the Vice-royal period. The monastery has a library that f
eatures twenty-five thousand ancient texts, an Islamic-inspired dome, carved in wood and, the most chilling aspect, a series of catacombs that have on display the bones of more
than twenty-five thousand people.
After being forgotten for a long time, the catacombs were rediscovered in 1943 and some believe they are connected  the city’s cathedral and other churches through a network of underground tunnels. At the time of their construction, the
crypts were the burial grounds for members of guilds and brotherhoods. Now visitors can observe them through the
floors of the church of San Francisco, held together by nets.
The bones are laid out in geometric shapes, especially in
mandala patterns, suggesting that whoever placed them
favored a metaphysical purpose before a useful one.
