  • Peruvians do not let you walk quiet, offer you things and you continue for half a block. The sector is ugly but they say that they are worth the price, in our case, we could not window shopping. We were 30 min walking and decided to go to powder blue. I do not recommend it.

  • I recommend visiting Gamarra if accompanied and if they don't "fear" to the most popular places full of people, because that whole area can be somewhat chaotic, there are many shops and galleries, clothes of all kinds at a super price. Even there are sellers on the streets, since these are closed to allow people to pass. It can be quite confusing, so I recommend going with care.

  • Very good place to buy clothes cheap (both original, as imitation) of the best quality (cotton Peruvian, the best), if shopping on above 3 garments you considered to the by greater, and you the charge more cheap. EYE should go early, before night falls, as it is considered a dangerous, always go in Group and with just enough neighborhood anyway.
