  • This Park is located 4 blocks from the plaza San Martín and is a nice place to sit and relax. It is not large tran as above square but is much less busy and is ideal for sitting, rest and think where one is going to continue touring Lima. Also is on the same block as the Pantheon of the heroes by what is can kill 2 birds with one stone itself

The German or the clock tower was donated by German residents in Peru, on the occasion of the centenary of the independence of Peru. in 1921. The midday, both also at six in the afternoon, its chimes played the first verse of the national anthem of Peru.
