Lima, Peru is home to approximately 8 million people and is situated in the central coastal region of Peru. The intermingling of Western and Andean cultures has created a rich and varied cultural tradition which finds its reflection in architecture, art, handicrafts, and varied cuisine, music, and folklore. In Lima, the past and present are interwoven, and the archaeological remains of ancient civilizations form part of this modern and cosmopolitan city. Lima is the cultural center of Peru and offers entertainment in the form of theaters, cinemas, cafes, and discotheques, which are found most prominently in Miraflores and Barranco, the city's two foremost cultural districts.
