LIMA, PERU 4K - HISTORIC CENTER WALK - 2019 (SUBTITULOS)
Bienvenidos. Dez de Lima Peru but more specifically, the historic. Center, and I'm, taking along with me to be able to explore, this beautiful. Area. We. Are starting, on, the. Here on Conde they super dune de which is a freaking. Mouthful. But the. Street is, so, full. Of life, cuddler. Like. Beautiful. Shades of yellow. Reds. Oranges. Blues. And not, only that but like there's these beautiful. Balconies. That surround, you on both sides, I will get more into the, balconies, a little, bit later. But. Lots. Of people kind, of hustling, about and kind of shoving me sadly lots. Of dogs if you're like me I, love, animals. Hi. He's so cute, he. Is kind of taking a siesta, maybe has his belly full you'll, see lots of those around here, and lots, of really, cool. Little. Restaurants. Kind, of like holes in the walls where you don't really think about it because. Well. Yeah it's very, Center and yeah. A lot of tourists come here because. Why not you're, here right. People. Tend, to stick around big, metal pillars and stuff like that especially when it comes to food but, be, adventurous. Now. As, we. Walk a little bit of ways and maybe you can't see it right now but I can't I see, the place that I am, really excited to, see in introduced, I actually, have never been there before, kind. Of crazy, I've been to Peru so many times and I, haven't, really taken the opportunity or the chance to, really explore the historic, center we're, really excited, oh, yeah. That's another thing that you will notice here in Lima specifically. Is. Lots. Of Florence, I mean. They say there's Quechua, Spanish, and horn honking, for the third language I, mean. Maybe. Not an official, language but probably, pretty close so. The. Next. Site. That we're coming up on is the Basilica and, content, of the Santo Domingo, which, is this. Beautiful. Pink. And. Off-white. Yellow. Ish color, but. I find, the peak to be very unique, in color. Because you don't really see, many churches, but. Are a colorful, and, B. Peak. And not. That I mind at all because I, love the color paint and it's more of a salmon color, and I prefer Salman. So. A. Little. More about that but I actually think was the coolest part about this church that I read is. The. Main house or historic, building, there is, actually. The. University, of San Marcos which, was the officially. The, first University, of Peru which, is actually, the. Oldest. University. And all, of the, Americas. That's. Kind of crazy right I mean, I didn't. Know that before, then but, I would have never guessed I the, oldest university. Would be here. In Lima so. The more you know, but. Back on this really, SuperDuper long, name street now. It, didn't actually get its name. This. Really, long, name, until. Around the 20th century, and. Before. That the. Streets expanded. Around six blocks and. It. Has six different names, so, I guess either. You have a little bit of a trade off you don't have, to remember six different, block, names, anymore, you, just have to remember the long way. So. Another. Really, cool portion, that I've been buying, that. Haven't really immersed. Myself. It's called the. Central, post office alleyway. And post office, of. Lima. It's. No longer a post office it actually closed a couple of years ago and since. 2011. It has, become a museum a Peruvian. Gas turn on. Gastronomy. It's, really hard to talk. Which. Can you blame the Peruvians, I mean when your food is as, delicious, as. It is, here in Peru. I mean. Why not make every, building that you can into, a museum, or into, something about gastronomy. Now. This. Building is also in the really pretty shade of pink that the church was so. I actually, kind of see that quite, often, now. There. Is the main building which is pink which. Is the post office and they said right behind it is actually the alleyway, and we'll. Be going through it first time actually and. It's. Supposed to be a bunch of little, bitty shops, for you to just kind of browse and, shop about. Give. Me one moment I want to make sure to. Cross the street and look, both ways make, sure you do that while in your like, while you're here. And. If. You look once make sure you look again because people, kind, of tend to come out of nowhere and you know they're not looking for you so, you have to stay, alert and. So. This is the main alleyway. Again, this, is right behind the, old post office building. And. Like besides it's a bunch of shops which are really colorful and beautiful like, it seems like even when they're closed. Like. They're. Painted. And I. Wish I knew the name of the flower that. These actually are if you, know the name of the flowers that are painted. On. These. Little. Babies, they're. Like storage. Units they uh supply storage but. They're not storage units because they house these. Little pop-up shops but, let me know cuz, the flowers, look, really pretty really.
Colorful. And. Above. Me it almost looks like glass and, maybe. At one point in time there was glass, but. Now I think. It's. Completely open. But. It's really pretty like, and there's, not that many people through. Here I, we're. Gonna speed it up because. There's. Just a big open area right here I'm, not that many shops, towards. The end of. The. Alleyway. Stitch. From. Lilo &, Stitch. Do. You like if you're like me you like plushies, you're. Never too old for plushies. But. You can get some really cute stuff here you're, thinking of your kids or loved one and you've, almost forgot, to. Get them something although there's plenty of places all through Lima that you can also get your your souvenirs, from and. I do recommend you check those places out too. Now. Stairs. There's. Actually not that many stairs, through. Lima. Which. Is quite the opposite, of when we like, when. I visited. Italy. So. The. Main, light. Focal, point that you will find when. You are here in the historic centre and it's. Almost impossible to, miss is the government, palace. And, actually. Known as the house of Pizarro because I mean of course Francisco. Pizarro is, the whole founder, of. Lima. Oh. Well. I will correct myself. But. Pizarro is a very, well-known. Name that, you'll hear quite a lot. Here's. The kind key stud or not, founder, so. Excuse, me on that but. He is the one that came, he. Built this house back. In. 1535. Unfortunately. It's. A very unlucky, I want to say unlucky, as in its caught fire twice, so. The building that we see now was. Mostly, built. Between, the 1920s, and. The 1930s, but. Don't let that like I said make, you feel sad or anything it's, a beautiful. Beautiful, building. And, if. You are here and if you do decide to come here I highly. Highly highly. Highly. Recommend. Can't recommend, it enough to. Get here at noon time because. They. Do the changing, of the guards. Every. Day every. Day at noon and I'm. Not sure if they changed, it any I know the, one time that I did come I. Wasn't. Allowed at, all, in the square but they had it all blocked off because of protests that were going but. It seems like that may not be the case today because I, am. Like right outside the gate. But. It's absolutely. Gorgeous. Huge. Like. Here's just an understatement. Oh I should mention that this, house houses. That. Sounds a little redundant. This. Is where the President, of Peru stays, how cool, is that like, you would almost feel like a king even though you're not a king you're just a president. But. You even have your own royal. It's. A cult royal guard but. You have your like your own guard, as president, like that is awesome. Now. It's. Really bright I'm, gonna, make sure that I don't look, up too much, because. The Sun is literally, right. There, because. I decided. To come, well. I decided to come when there wasn't a lot of traffic or wasn't gonna be a lot of traffic that's also another thing that you shouldn't be mindful of is, Peru. During peak hours, there's, a lot of traffic there's a lot of people here I've seen this place be, busier, than what it is now. But. I. Am. Now in, the birthplace, of, all. Of. Lima. It. Is the main square the, Plaza Mayor the, Plaza de Armas, there's, a lot of names for it but this. Is the. Absolute. Fundamental. Birthplace. Of what. Lima has, become what it is now, you see the. Cathedral, that. I'm walking towards, and I, do recommend that if you're here. To take a tour like get, a tour group and, you. Know explore each individual. Places this, will be much more knowledgeable, about it, and you, get to see a lot of cool things because, it's. Not just the Incan culture is the colonial, Spanish culture that you see all through, here and right. Next to the church you see the art. Art. Bishop's, Palace and they. Even have the beautiful. Balconies. But. This one is like I find those if you look extremely gorgeous, and another thing that you will see a lot is, lots, and lots and lots of yellow but, I don't mind it it's, a really pretty shade of yellow and there's, just so much life here like I can't. Get over of like people. Just come here to, waste, time to spend time with their families, to just, take a normal, scroll, to, live their everyday life, and, you.
Know It's just kind of really cool to be a part of that and to share a part of that and another. Really cool thing is this fountain back behind me I, do. Believe, that fountain. Was. Provided. In the, sixteen, hundreds, not. Really, sure about the time. But. It's it's. Really pretty I love fountains, so. I. Want. To go to this really cool street alleyway. And I, want to make sure that I know exactly where. I'm going so I don't look too lost. So. Once, I find that I'll be right back alright, so I'm not gonna mention how, long it actually took, or, how much time has passed to find the street but the good news is I finally did and we, just came from right over there, so we are now on here on de la reunión. And I. Said that's still very American, nice. So. This, street is completely, pedestrianised. So it's completely, closed to traffic so you will find tons. Of people, here so I should recommend coming, during the weekday where people are at work and, kids are at school. Because. This, is gonna be a sea of people during the weekend, now, it's, still colorful. Like the rest of the square but, not quite as much. It's very commercialized. Now. Which. Makes sense because there's, tons of little shops because, you know people want to you. Know appeal, to the people who are walking, back, and forth. So. Another. Really cool thing about this street is it's. Not really a street and I say that is it the. Ground is completely tiled, as if, you're like indoors, I mean. I. Keep. Saying I know that makes sense but I mean if cars aren't really passing, so you don't really have to worry about them getting destroyed, so. Now. If. You're walking through you, Buller just strolling. Going. In and out of these little shops, I'm pretty sure you can find almost anything, through, here I mean. The. Street. Is. Very bus. Bus. Bus bus, at. The core okay so, good. News is I have found more. Of the balconies, that I mentioned, earlier that I would talk more about so. Lima. Is so unique, when, it comes to these clothes style balconies. Because. The people who came here back, in the day which. Was, during the conquest. What. Is that more conservative, and the, really cool thing is this you can only find, these, in this. Latin American, city all the other ones are more open, so, like if you go to other Latin American cities to find more of the open balconies, now, these are. Supposed. To be unique. From. Egypt. In, Syria, so if you go there you may find. More. About canoes, like that and it. Makes sense because this. Was the most, important. Boulevard, of all, of Lima back in, 1535. Where. All of the, most a fluent. People, the, most influential. Men, from, all, over, the, world would calm and it. Makes, sense to, live up to the. That Lima had which, was the city of the, kinks how, cool. Of a, nickname to. Have the city of the kinks I mean, just. Saying it makes me feel oh well. Royal so. There is more. Cathedrals. Coming. Ahead Oh run, run run run right the way to get hit by cars, because. Technically, I wasn't supposed to be crossing the street so don't follow in, my example, it's a bad example. So. Oh. Wow. Now. This, entrance, - I believe. This is also a cathedral you'll find lots of cathedrals, here in, Lima. But. I find that very common. For. South. America in. General or any Latin American country and how. Cool is this store. Is that a store, inside. This freaking I don't. Know cool. Building. So. I was talking, about the third language of crew being horns, they're. Speaking to me, too. Bad I don't really speak their languages I don't, think I would have the nerve to drive, here like. If. You drive here, and Lima. Kudos. Kudos. To, you I think. My my. Stress levels, would fly off the rocks. This, street is fairly. Long so it, is nice if you're just wanting to walk. Off a few, of those calories. That. You racked, up from eating all of the delicious Peruvian. Food while you're here because, that is exactly what I'm doing right now. Okay. So that Street was much, longer, than I had anticipated but. We're finally, here at the last landmark. That, I have for you to show you and. I. Am gonna walk the street before the light, turns.
Red Again, oh the, red lights uh last, for like oh no. Like 90, seconds, and then you get like not, even 30 seconds, to cross the street. Whoo. Watch your step, you're coming this way, I'm. Sure there's a main entrance, in all, corners. But. To. Introduce, this Plaza as I have before in, my, other, Peru. Video, of the five things to see or do while, in Lima is, the, Plaza de, San martín. Which. You. See send, my teen on his horse I don't know the horse's, name I wish I did cos I like animals and I like knowing that stuff, which. Was inaugurated. On. July. 27. 1921. The, hundredth, anniversary of. Peru's. Independence. So, that's really cool, also, syn Martine which is josé, de, San martín is, the, liberator of Peru, and. This. Place was, dubbed a World Heritage Site, in nineteen. Eight, so, little, tidbit, this. Plaza is really cool too we, came here or it's just I came here last time when the whole entire Plaza. De Armas, was completely, blocked off and, it was kind of sad but, I you know walk the little ways and made it here and, this is just a really chill spot to think I said people just sitting. With, their families, just passing, time is not, as busy as the players a day autumn s so. That's also another thing to keep in mind if you prefer. A more chillax. Area. Which I do, so. I, definitely. Recommend coming, here even if you're coming to the Plaza de Armas I mean it's not that bad of a walk I definitely, recommend just coming here to oh, and. I. Said, more, dogs. And they, look like they're blooming. You'll. Find these everywhere like. Not kidding. It it. Is sad but. Know that like some of these guys don't have homes but some. Of them do have people. Who do watch and take care of them we call them bodega, dogs. Which. A bodega. Is like a little small shop, oh hello. Sun hello. Sun. Right in my eyes. So. This. Is gonna conclude, my, historic. Walking. Tour, I'm so, happy that you guys could come along with me it's, been really fun. If. I got anything wrong at. Any.
