Barranco, Lima

4.5
#2 of 18 in Neighborhoods in Peru
Most cities have a bohemian district, but few are built into a ravine like Barranco, the artistic neighborhood minutes from the center of Lima. Once a holiday spot for Lima's elite, the area was consumed by the urban sprawl and was taken over by artists and bohemians, giving it the easy spirit it enjoys today. Take a walk along the famous Bridge of Sighs, which connects two cliffs, then grab a drink at one of the neighborhood's trendy, colorful bars. Don't miss the neighborhood's beaches, which attract keen surfers from around the world. Use our Lima trip itinerary planning website to arrange your visit to Barranco and other attractions in Lima.

  • Eclectic colonial architecture. Playful colorfulness, lots of shops of Arteagne (popular art works) from all over Peru. Eating good local food. A good opportunity to get acquainted with the Peruvian home kitchen. Except for a few sample names: Pepe Ella Vankaena, Pepe interviewed (a potato stuffed), and Lomeado, Limora Morada, Picroons. I ate at Rostico, and I ate lukuma ice cream. A simple recommendation will go "lost" on the streets of Branko and enjoy graffiti art from Arteagne and taste everything that is unfamiliar to you like Lukuma ice cream

  • We took a night stroll around the neighborhood. Super charming, with bright and safe public walks with endless possibilities of restaurants and bars. Must!
