Barranco, Lima
(4.5/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web)
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 vacation generator to arrange your visit to Barranco and other attractions in Lima.

  • The center of Canyon is a place with lots of activity, there are many restaurants and streets are very interesting and pleasant. There are two churches, which I like the most is the San Francisco, is very beautiful, with pale-pink marble, is charming and overlooks a small square. There is usually something exhibition panels in the main Park of Holy Cross Church. This more than a park is a square, has benches and a few ancient pools, there crossing the runway will walk to the bridge of Sighs, where there is a traditional architecture of Barranco, street musicians many times, bars, and the sea is seen. Going for one side you reach a cliff where there is a bar, the view is very nice. Barranco is a Bohemian district but has some luxurious and many new residential buildings overlooking the sea. There are also some local sale of sandwiches of suckling pig, Turkey, sausages, such as the Tejadita, us and other sandwiches. To highlight gelato Blu and the new restaurant Isolina.

  • The perfect space to enjoy the panoramic view towards the sea and if it's worth the time to take a bath with sand and warm sea water.

  • Very accessible, it is a very different area of Lima. I think that you will like it. There are a lot of good places to eat too.
