Fifty Leagues To The Southward, And About Fifteen Leagues From The Coast, Is The City Of San Miguel, Named _Piuru_ By The Indians, In A Pleasant And Fruitful Country, But Which Has No Mines Of Gold Or Silver.

Most people who have occasion to go there are liable to be afflicted with diseases of the eyes.

Sixty leagues farther along the coast, is the city of Truxillo, two leagues from the sea, in the valley of Chimo, having a dangerous harbour of difficult approach. This city stands on the banks of a river in a fine plain, which is fertile in wheat and maize, and breeds great abundance of cattle, having plenty of excellent water. Truxillo is very regularly built, and is inhabited by about three hundred Spanish families. About eighty leagues from Truxillo to the south, and in the valley of _Rimac_, stands the city of _Los Reys_, or Lima, because it was founded at Epiphany, vulgarly called the day of the kings. This city is about two leagues from the harbour of _Callao_, an excellent and secure harbour, and is situated on a large river in a fine plain, abounding in grain, and in all kinds of fruit and cattle. All the streets are perfectly straight, and all of them lead towards the country, which may be seen from all parts of the city. This is a most agreeable residence, as the air is always temperate, being never either too hot or too cold at any season of the year.
