Full description
Enjoy a tour of Lima's cultural district of Barranco. Barranco has become known as a bohemian neighborhood with a budding art scene. Its old colonial mansions are being turned into restaurants, cafés, clubs, design shops, art galleries, and museums. Stroll through the coastal neighborhood and soak up its history. Start with a hotel pickup and transfer to Barranco. Visit the Osma Museum to check out a wide collection of Peruvian colonial art. Then, go to the Mario Testino Art Gallery to see an exhibit of famous Peruvian photographer's best work. Next up, visit Las Pallas, a craft and traditional folk art shop. Explore the wide and colorful variety of pieces brought from artisanal communities around Peru. Finally, enjoy a magical walk through the romantic Bridge of Sighs, which inspired the great Peruvian singer Chabuca Granda to compose one of her most iconic and well-known songs.
