Lima's district Indenpendencia

The District Independencia

Municipalidad de Independencia

Av. Tupac Amaru km 4.5
  • Independencia
City (Peru)
Postal Code
Lima 28

The district of Independencia is located north of Lima's city center. In the last years Independencia developed into the economical center of the Northern Cone of Lima. Commercial Centers like the Mega Plaza Norte and the Plaza Norte offer everything Lima's new middle-class can dream of: restaurants, cinemas, gyms, department stores, supermarkets, kids entertainment, shops selling cloth, sports ware, perfumes and much more.

You find also two universities, other shopping facilities supplying all types of needs, a stadium, a skate park, a good transport connection to other districts and an overall good public infrastructure with police, fire department, hospitals and cultural centers.

In spite of a fast growing economy and infrastructure and the visible progress, the district made in the last years, Independencia still is home to thousands of people living in unbelievably poor circumstances.
