INSIDELIMA AGENDA

Insidelima opens this new Agenda so you can be updated about the best things to do in the city. The main idea is to give you, either if you are a visitor just passing by or an ex-pat staying here for a while, the possibility of sharing the local culture from an inside point of view.

This agenda will give more importance to the kind of things you won’t find in a local guide book. It will be divided into 4 areas, considering most of all Free Entrance activities:

1. Art
2. Films
3. Music
4. Events
