Right in the heart of Lima. So worth going to and then walk all over from there. Fun and busy city. Try the food in the area and walk the streets.

Is a nice Plaza in Lima. It instantly transports you to a different era at least 100 years ago. The Plaza is named for the liberator of Peru, Jose de San Martin. There is a statue in his honor. The space in the plaza is grand and open and reminds you of cities in Europe.
A lot of people in this square. Some pickpockets frequent--be careful and keep your wits about you. When we were there it looked like political gathering. Not a comfortable feeling.

Walking to Plaza San Martin from Plaza de Armas is a very nice walk, especially at night, as there is a pedestrian only walk-way between them. The plaza is well lit at night and is quite beautiful, plus surrounded by beautiful buildings with restaurants and bars.
Nice, clean park in downtown Lima that is easily accessible. Although crowded with protestors, the plaza felt safe. Statue at the centre of the plaza has a fun history and was a good photo opportunity.
This is also a nice place to visit when you are Downtown Lima to walk around and enjoy the place. Near by are good traditional and cheap restaurants
The statue at the center has a woman with a llama on her head, apparently the Spanish word for flame and llama are the same and when it was commissioned there was a misunderstanding about the crown of flames that was wanted. The result is really adorable.
