Lima's best folkloric music and dance show can be found in the center of this large amphitheater space, which has become something of a cultural institution. It's a bit more touristy than some of the other peñas around town, though with 50 years of experience, it's one of the country's best instruments for preserving traditional Peruvian music and dance. A highlight is the department of Puno, Peru's capital of folkloric music and dance festivals like the famed Fiesta de la Candelaria. Colorful costumes and lively ensembles, paired with elaborately prepared routines, are a sight to behold. Simple, typical Peruvian meals are also served with the shows.
