Classic Architecture in BarrancoBarranco is the most famously bohemian neighborhood of Lima. In the Colonial and early Republican eras, this district was a beach and pleasure playground for wealthy Limeños. In the early 20th century, Barranco attracted a cadre of prominent artists and writers who gave the area its colorful reputation. Today, the neighborhood retains a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere amid neatly-preserved 19th-century architecture. The Suspiros Bridge (Puente de los Suspiros) spans the center of the district, facing the sea. This is a beautiful spot to walk around, appreciate colonial architecture, and watch the sunset. Make sure to have some anticuchos and pisco in one of the district's various "resto-bars."
