Most cities have a bohemian district, but few are built into a ravine like Barranco, the artistic neighborhood minutes from the center of Lima. Once a holiday spot for Lima's elite, the area was consumed by the urban sprawl and was taken over by artists and bohemians, giving it the easy spirit it enjoys today. Take a walk along the famous Bridge of Sighs, which connects two cliffs, then grab a drink at one of the neighborhood's trendy, colorful bars. Don't miss the neighborhood's beaches, which attract keen surfers from around the world. Use our Lima trip itinerary planning website to arrange your visit to Barranco and other attractions in Lima.
