Lima Metropolitana in Peru

Lima Metropolitana is the largest metro area in Peru and encompasses the capital city of Lima. It covers an area of about 1010 km² (390 sq mi), and runs north-south along the Pacific Ocean coast for more than 50 km (31 mi). This metro area extends nearly 40 km (25 mi) from east to west, following the Rímac River inland from the ocean. It is bordered by the Lima Provincias region on the east, south and north; and by the Callao region and the Pacific Ocean on the west.


Metropolitan Lima is not part of any of the twenty-five regions of Peru, and therefore has no regional government of its own. Instead, it is controlled directly by the Municipality of Lima. The mayor of Lima is Luis Castañeda Lossio.


Metropolitan Lima is divided into 43 districts (distritos; singular: distrito). Each district is headed by a mayor (alcalde).

Lima and Callao Metropolitan Area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (510 words)
The Lima and Callao Metropolitan Area (Spanish: Área Metropolitana de Lima y Callao) is an area formed by the conurbation of the Peruvian cities of Lima (the nation's capital) and Callao.
The Lima and Callao Metropolitan Area is not to be confused with the area known as Lima Metropolitana (Metropolitan Lima), as this name refers only to the area occupied by the Lima Province and does not include Callao.
It is concentrated mainly in the coastal area and runs north-south along the Pacific coast for almost 200 km, beginning in the district of Ancón, on the border with the Huaral Province of the Lima region, and ending in the district of Pucusana, on the border with the Cañete Province, also in the Lima region.
