Having a beautiful sunny day, we decided to go to Barranco just to walk around the city. There is so much history here to see!

One of my favorite neighborhoods in Lima and absolutely a must for tourists. Easy safe walking will lead you into many attractions and along the way you can enjoy great food, cool street art, and historical sites. The area is full of life and very vibrant. I wish I could have spent more time there.

"Barranco" is one of Lima's many districts. The area was chosen by Lima's upper classes to build here their Summer and weekend fancy homes. As time passed, "Barranco" became the most romantic and bohemian district of Lima, with the old colonial mansions being converted into restaurants, cafés, bars, clubs, design shops, art galleries and museums. A sidewalk, along the cliffs, although very windy, offers beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean down below, with beaches very popular among local surfers. While visiting "Barranco", don't miss some of its most important attractions: "Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MAC)", "Museo Mario Testino (MATE)", "Museo Pedro de Osma", "Puente de los Suspiros", "Parque Municipal de Barranco" and "Iglesia de la Santísima Cruz". End your visit at pedestrian "Boulevard Sanchéz-Carrión", near el "Parque Municipal de Barranco", a strip of restaurants, bars, cafés and clubs! Enjoy!

A funky laid back corner of Lima that rewards slow walking and is close enough via the metropolitano rapid buses to most places. If you seek out the area next to the bridge of sighs it gets better and better.
