Parque de la Exposicion, Lima

(3.1/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Stroll through Parque de la Exposicion, a grand yet peaceful getaway marked with stately historical features. The park houses an old arts museum inaugurated in 1872, as well as Moorish and Byzantine pavillions. The grounds served military purposes during the Pacific War of the 19th century, when injured Peruvian soldiers were treated here and the Chilean army later used the park as a base. The pristine fountains and gardens are complemented by the traditional alfresco restaurants located within the space.

  • A large park, well wooded and flowery. Has a small pond with fish and ducks, But I didn't think it was very well maintained. Has a beautiful gazebo and the Musée des Beaux-Arts, neoclassical lines. Worth visiting if you go to the Museum and if you have time.
