Alternative Lima city tour: Santo Domingo + Cathedral + Chinatown

Discover the other colonial city of Lima

Discover the colonial city of Lima with our alternative city tour, you will visit the Santo Domingo convent, the Lima Cathedral—the only cathedral with wooden columns and finally we will take you to the first Chinatown in South America.

The convent of Santo Domingo stands out because the most famous Peruvian saints in the world lived here: San Martin de Porres (the first saint of African origin) and Santa Rosa de Lima (the first saint born on the American continent); both saints lived in this convent at the beginning of the 17th century during the Spanish occupation.

The abolition of slavery in Peru occurred in the middle of the 19th century, this was the main reason for Chinese migration to Peru.
