AbstractThe preservation of the Historic Center of Lima should be prioritized. The purpose of this paper is to provide evidence and information about the adequate conservation and preservation of cultural heritage buildings in Lima, focusing on the Historic Center in Lima Center. Most of the cultural heritage buildings in this area have been completely abandoned. Although there is a plan to preserve them, very few are being cared for, leaving a large portion of them abandoned and risking the loss of important history and architecture. I approached the topic from a historical, touristic, and economic point of view. I work in this area of the city because there are buildings there with an important historical antecedent, or that present outstanding architectural typologies. The importance of the study lies in the significance that these buildings have for the economic, cultural, touristic, and historical progress of the district and the city. I focused on why this district should be prioritized. Furthermore, similar cases in different parts of the world with the same context or problem were analyzed, allowing us to compare and use them as a reference for an appropriate intervention in specific buildings in the area. Surveys were also used to know the opinion of the population on the problem and what their point of view was, if the intervention and preservation of these buildings were eventually carried out. As a result, although the population does not know the history of the buildings, if there were a plan to maintain them and subsequently teach their history, they would be interested in visiting them, which would be an economic support for the maintenance of the buildings.
