Parque Municipal - City Park Lima - Peru

Barranco's Parque Municipal is one of Lima's most beautiful and unique town squares. This little park serves as a plaza—and surrounded on four sides by beautiful Spanish architecture, tasteful restaurants and bars, an imposing crimson catholic church. The originality of the ambiance is refreshing and invigorating. You can simply sit on the bench and consume all the energy and color. In the distance a green marble stage, reminiscent of a Greek amphitheater, rests below the prominent, white marble neoclassical columns. Statues of Cupid, figures of Roman Goddesses, spring from the vibrant, decorative patches of flowers. And above, the large trees spread outwards, serving as umbrellas against Lima’s piercing summer sun.
