  1. Barranco District

    Barranco is one of 43 districts in Lima, Peru. Its current mayor is Jessica Vargas and its postal code is 04. 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 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. There is a beautiful 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, an iconic bridge which crosses the ravine itself and was inaugurated on 14 February 1876. The bridge is a famous meeting place for lovers, and has a lovely view towards the sea and the Hermita church. On the far side of the bridge is a park with a statue of Barranco's famous singer and composer, Chabuca Granda.
