One of the two most beautiful squares in Lima along with the Plaza de Armas. Rich in history, the buildings around are magnificent and the lights at night give a unique atmosphere to the place. It's worth taking a walking tour in order to know about the history of the place.
We stay one night in Lima before we go to Machu Picchu. We chose Gran Bolivar Hotel. We were surprised that we got the room facing to Plaza San Martin. Itis very beatiful day and night.
