About the Tour

After our meeting, we take a public transportation to go to Callao (15 kilometers). 

Getting there, we visit Real Felipe Fortress (Royal Phillip in spanish), the biggest of the southamerican shore of the Pacific Ocean, built to protect to Callao Port against the attack of pirates and corsaries who wanted to rob the gold and silver shipped to Spain. 

Then, we walk in some streets to watch the architecture of very old companies which operated there, considering Callao is still being, the main Port of Perú, actually recovered. 

Pasaje or Casa Ronald is a high building of the 1920's that now is an art gallery and studio of local painters and photographers that show the real life of a port. 

Going to Grau Plaza, we have the chance to take a boat for having a panoramic view of the docks of Callao, the main port of Perú. On the route we see Cannon of the People and Abtao Submarine. 

Taking a bus, we go to La Punta, neighborhood of peruvians descendents of italians who came in the XIX century. Good place to eat sea food. 

P.D.: You have to pay Tickets in Real Felipe Fortress and the boat for the panoramic view of Callao.
