    Peruvian National Congress at Plaza Bol��var
    2 more images

    Also at the old city center of Lima, a few blocks from Plaza de Armas, is the Simon Bolivar Square and the National Congress.

    The square is closed by gates and fences and you can only take pictures from behind them.

    In front of the square is the National Museum of the Holy Inquisition (you can see it in the second picture, behind Simon Bolívar´s Statue).

    Soldado desconocido - The Crypta at the Congress

    The crypta

    Outside the Congress there is a newly build crypta for the unknown soldier.
    The boy who is buried here was found on the colina at Chorrillos, where some excavation now are taking place.
    As I recall it, the guide from the Congress said that the crypta was for the known soldier (i.e. not the unknown soldier), as they had found a paper in his pocket that told about his name.
    But as you can see, the sign says desconocido (unknown)!

    After identificating yourself (passport) you can enter the congress building and join a guided tour (spanish or english). Guided tour are given to small groups, which have to move discretely through the building.
    Ask at the entrance for the scheduled times for the visit.

    Congreso

    This building hosts the National Congress. This is located in a kind of bad neighborhood so beware around here.
