Tour Description
Rimac is one of the 43 districts of the city of Lima and it is next to the Historic area which is a World Heritage Center by UNESCO. This district is also member of the Organization of World Heritage Cities. Rimac has several rich historical sites, streets, and monuments that make a very worthy visit to do: Convento de los Descalzos (XVI century), Alameda de los Descalzos, Paseo de Aguas, Jr. Trujillo and its balconies, the smallest chapel in the world: Nuestra Señora del Rosario, San Lazaro Church and Plaza de Toros de Acho.

The Alameda de los Descalzos is an elegant avenue constructed in 1611 by Viceroy Juan de Mendoza y Luna, Marquis of Montesclaros. Together with Paseo de Aguas which was constructed in 1770 by Viceroy Manuel de Amat y Juniet. The Alameda de los Descalzos has 6 small sculptures and other big 12 marble sculptures that are related to the zodiac and the Greek gods. In 1856 it was refurbished with the installation of a wrought-iron fence imported from England and large entrance gates. This together with marble benches and gardens with beautiful flowers, makes it a urban beauty in the area. The Paseo de las Aguas is very near the “Plaza de Toros de Acho”, bullring built in the colonial times. The park has a big arch as an entrance, gardens, and water fountains.
