Certainly the modern Peruvian capital and largest city of Lima was founded in 1535, and by no less than Pizarro too. But Spanish colonial culture represents only half of the influences in this place, which is well-known both for artifacts and cathedrals from colonial times, and for its Incan archaeological sites.
