In fact, this is the highest honor bestowed by Tripadvisor, a travel site with over 535 million reviews and opinions covering the largest selection of travel listings worldwide —over 7 million accommodations, airlines, attractions, and restaurants.

Thanks to Tripadvisor community, the site tops the list of must-sees in Lima and is considered the second tourist attraction after the great Machu Picchu citadel.
