Lima is the capital of Peru and the financial, commercial and cultural centre of the nation. The city has a diverse multicultural society that has endured and has contributed to the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the city. The Benedictine monks founded the University of San Marcos in Lima as early as 1551; it was the first university established in the Americas. The broad boulevards lined with sleek skyscrapers and glass office towers are a contrast to the baroque squares and colonial buildings found in the city.
