Overseas Shipping to Callao, Peru

Just nine miles west of Lima and home to Peru’s main international airport, the coastal city of Callao is rapidly becoming a popular destination for many. In addition to its stunning beaches and beautiful architecture, the city has a rich history. It was founded in 1537 by the Spaniards and served as a central location in the colonial movement. The main attraction, the Royal Felipe Fortress, played a large role at the time. After taking 27 years to complete, it opened in 1774 to protect Lima from pirates. It is now the Peruvian Army Museum.

In 2011, a $1 billion dollar investment was given to the port to renovate its infrastructure. Callao also contains the Callow Cathedral and a large navy base. Connected by the Ferrocarril Central Andino Railway, Callao is known as “Lima’s port to the world” and is the foremost Pacific port for Spanish commerce.
