Magdalena del Mar is a seaside district west of Lima's city center. In the early 20th century the area was suppose to develop as a popular spa and resort like neighbouring Miraflores or Chorrillos. Today Magdalena del Mar, founded as Marbella and known among Limeños just as Magdalena, is largely a residential area with well preserved ancient streets and a great market with an abundant supply.

Worth a visit are the church "Inmaculado Corazón de María" at the end of Av. Brasil and the statue of Tupac Amaru II, the leader of an indigenous uprising against the Spanish in Peru in 1780, at the main plaza. Don't miss the nicely maintained "malecon" with the stunning view over the Pacific Ocean and beautiful green areas.
