On Monday I presented to you some images of Plaza Mayor and Plaza San Martin in Lima, Peru.  Today we’re going to enjoy a few more images of both plazas as well as another image or two nearby.

Plaza San Martin

Plaza San Martin

Plaza San Martin derives its name from a historical figure we’ve discussed previously from this voyage — Argentine General José de San Martin.  San José de San Martin was an instrumental figure in South America’s struggle for independence from Spain.  There is even a statue commemorating him at the center of the plaza:

Not all the views are in the plazas of Lima.  Keep an eye out along the side streets for views such as this:

Or of Lima’s famous balconies:

Plaza Mayor is a treasure trove of images for the photographer.  Below I present today’s photo gallery of images of this one area.  Just click on any image below to enlarge and bring up today’s slide show.
