Milagros Llontop

Hola! My name is Milagros. I'm an official tour guide in Lima since 2010. I studied Art, which equipped me with better comprehension and knowledge of different artistic treasures that Lima has. Currently, I am studying Sustainable Tourism. My purpose is to share my understanding of our old temples with foreigners and locals by including them in regular touristic itineraries.
