We will also be able to explore the municipality of Lima, the "Club Union" & the famous Cathedral of Lima - whose construction dates back more than 300 years!
We continue our tour in San Francisco church known for its famous catacombs, subterranean tunnels where the ancient inhabitants of Lima were buried.
Then, as our journey continues, we will arrive at "The House of Literature". Here visitors can learn more about the diversity & history of some of the many cultures native to Peru.
For our last stop, we'll save the best surprise of all - A visit to the chocolate museum, 'ChocoMuseo' Here group members can try pure cocoa (the national flavor of Peru!) While also sampling a whole host of other cocoa-based products - ranging from pisco infused drinks to the way to products such as cocoa shampoo & soap!
