Barranco is one of 43 districts in Lima, Peru. Its current mayor is Antonio Mezzarina Tong. The district is considered to be the city's most romantic and bohemian, being the home and working place of many of Peru's leading artists, musicians, designers and photographers. In the 19th-century, it was a very fashionable beach resort for the Limeño aristocracy, and many people used to spend the summer here and in neighboring Chorrillos. Today, Barranco's beaches are among the most popular within the worldwide surfing community, and a marina completed in 2008 provides state-of-the-art services for its yacht club.

  • Barranco is one of 43 districts in Lima, Peru. Its current mayor is Antonio Mezzarina Tong. The district is considered to be the city's most romantic and bohemian, being the home and working place of many of Peru's leading artists, musicians, designers and photographers. In the 19th-century, it was a very fashionable beach resort for the Limeño aristocracy, and many people used to spend the summer here and in neighboring Chorrillos. Today, Barranco's beaches are among the most popular within the worldwide surfing community, and a marina completed in 2008 provides state-of-the-art services for its yacht club. The name Barranco (Spanish for ravine) is descriptive of its topography, featuring homes and restaurants in and around a ravine near a cliff overlooking a sand strip which runs from the Miraflores District to Chorrillos (now flanked by a highway, Costa Verde Ave.). There is a walkway to the sea that runs through Barranco, called the Bajada de los Baños. Crossing over this walkway is the Puente de los Suspiros, or Bridge of Sighs, a bridge which crosses the ravine itself and was inaugurated on 14 February 1876. On the far side of the bridge is a park with a statue of Barranco native singer and composer, Chabuca Granda. Barranco has many houses in the colonial and Republican style (called "casonas"), flower-filled parks and streets, and appealing beachfront areas. Lima's contemporary art museum, the MAC, is located in Barranco, as well as the Museo Pedro de Osma, which hosts one of the best collections of colonial art and is itself one of Barranco's best kept examples of late-19th-century architectural style. The district includes numerous restaurants, nightclubs, discos, bars and peñas, where one can appreciate Peruvian music shows. On Pedro de Osma Ave., some tracks from the former streetcar (originally a railroad between Chorrillos/La Herradura and Downtown Lima) can be seen. The cliffs of Chorrillos shield Barranco from colder and more humid winds coming from the South. As a result, Barranco has a micro-climate that is warmer and drier than many of the other districts of Lima, which are generally more humid, especially between May and October. * "Biblioteca" (Library) at Barranco's Main Square. * Puente de los Suspiros is one of the main tourist attractions. * Memorial obelisk. * Puente de los Suspiros * Main plaza * A casona in Barranco * Fountain at Barranco's Main Square. * Monument to Chabuca Granda (en)
  • Le district de Barranco est l’un des 43 districts de la province de Lima, capitale du Pérou. Il est limité au nord par le district de Miraflores, à l’ouest par l’Océan Pacifique à l’est par le district de Santiago de Surco et au sud par le district de Chorrillos. Il est peuplé de 45 922 habitants pour une surface de 3,33 km². Le terme "Barranco" désigne un type de falaise ravinée caractéristique de la côte de Lima. La falaise domine une plage étroite et une voie rapide qui relie Miraflores à Chorrillos. Aujourd’hui, Barranco est le quartier romantique, bohème et noctambule de Lima avec de nombreux restaurants, bars, discothèques et “peñas criollas” (bar-restaurants où l’on joue la musique criolla). Il est agréable de s'y promener au milieu des parcs fleuris et de parcourir les rues arborées bordées de grandes villas entourées de jardin. La compositrice et chanteuse péruvienne Chabuca Granda a vécu dans ce district. (fr)
