Barranco Things to See and Do

follow us

Barranco’s activities are not of the tree-swinging, white-water variety. Instead they highlight the art and culture of one of Lima’s nicest neighborhoods. If you find yourself in Barranco, make sure you check out the galleries and art shops, because even if you’re not buying, looking is worth the effort. This cliff-top town also showcases beautiful colonial architecture and a bridge that has inspired thousands of artists and poets the world over.
