Cultural Centers in Peru

Peru has an amazing and rich historical and cultural past. For hundreds of years, the country has been a melting pot of different cultures and ethnic groups. The legacy of ancient cultures, combined with the traditions and customs of immigrants, especially from Europe, Asia, and migrants from the Andes and jungle, makes Peru a unique and diverse country. This also reflects in a rich cultural scene. In the capitol of Lima, next to ancient constructions, churches, museums, theaters, and cinemas, you find an uncountable selection of cultural centers.

The cultural centers in Lima are dedicated to promote foreign and Peruvian culture, offering, for example, language classes or arts seminars, showing theater plays, organizing music and folklore events or have amazing galleries and libraries.
