Barranco was one of our favorite stops in Lima. People watching, lively music, street artists, and a lovely view of "el mar".

This is not hugely exciting but we were told the story of the bridge by our excellent walking tour guide so the whole feature was brought alive. We heard how on Valentine’s Day the bridge is thronged with young couples which must be very entertaining....More

This is a cute district with a variety of coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. Some are excellent and well worth visiting. It's also a nice place for a walk or just to people watch.

This is the main bridge linking the various parts of the small neighborhood of Barranco. It has of course a ravine below it. Some great photo ops there too. This bridge seems to be emblematic of the neighborhood, lots of mostly locals in the square...More
