Rich archeological sites and well-preserved pyramids are proof that the great valleys of the Rimac have a history stretching back thousands of years to the Inca empire, and even before in pre-Columbian times.

After defeating the Inca ruler Atahualpa, Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizarro chose this area to set up the new capital of the Spanish empire in America. Thus, in 1535, he founded the city of Lima.
