MEETING POINT: The tour starts and ends at the La Marina Lighthouse in Miraflores (El Faro de la Marina).

The tour starts at the iconic lighthouse El Faro de La Marina, located in the Cisneros seafront (Malecón Cisneros). You will visit the Love Park (Parque del Amor), whose design was inspired by the famous Park Güell, in Barcelona, by the renowned architect Antonio Gaudí; discovering the story behind the sculpture El Beso, the centerpiece of the park. You shall then continue the tour to the exclusive mall Larcomar, very popular among tourists, being the second place with the largest number of visitors in our country, after the imperial citadel of Cusco. You will ride along the Olive Park ( Parque El Olivar), lung of the city dating from the sixteenth century, to learn about the history of its foundation, when the conqueror Francisco Pizarro gave the "El Rosario" estate to the Dominican Congregation, wherein the 1620's, San Martín de Porres did an amazing miracle: he planted an olive tree where it could not possibly grow, known as the "Olive of Happiness", which is still there, as you will see. You will visit the interior of the Huaca Huallamarca, a prehispanic construction in the form of a truncated pyramid from the first century before our era, whose function as a ceremonial center was restricted to a priestly elite.
