- Since the start of the 20th century, San Isidro has been characterised by the sobriety of a wealthy suburb. It is the garden district of Lima, and it radiates with green areas. The 'El Olivar' area stands out, so called for the hundreds of olive trees which grow in its parks. Here you find the best restaurants, hotels, areas of entertainment and the most famous shows in the capital.In recent years, it has also become an important business centre which now houses banks, ministries and some government organisations. Visiting 'Huaca Huallamarca', an occasional venue for artistic shows, is a must.
