Minka shopping center in Callao

Minka

Commercial City

Av. Argentina 3093

Callao

Minka is supposed to be the first and only "commercial city" in Peru. Opened in 1999 with only 150 shops, it offers its customers today more than 1000 different stores. Next to a "normal" shopping center with department stores, banks, pharmacies, apparel stores, gyms, restaurants and family entertainment, you find at Minka a great market with around 300 vendors offering fresh fruits, veggies, meat, poultry and groceries.

Don't miss the fish market where you not only can buy a great variety of fish and sea food but also have an excellent meal.
