Coliseo Amauta is the biggest multi-use indoor arena in Peru, located in the southern zone of the Lima District in Lima-Peru.

The arena has a capacity for 20,000 people, which can vary depending on use. It originally opened in 1968. It was the most important arena in Peru, today it has been left to its luck, no one gives care to this arena. On its good times it hosted events such as a Soda Stereo concert in 1987, and it was the home for one of the most important children TV program in the world: Nubeluz who used the arena for the broadcasting of the show until 1995 when they moved to Panamericana Television studios in Santa Beatriz. The arena hosts sport events as basketball and volleyball. Today it is used for evangelic events and also to host circus during July.

In 1982, Amauta Coliseum was the site of three big events including the Miss Universe 1982 on July 26; the Women's World Championship of Volleyball, from September 12 to September 25); and the OTI Song Contest, on November 27.
