Don’t confuse this place with the one in Venice, it’s not the same principle however the area / district Barranco is very bohemian with lots of wonderful street art and galleries around. Worth a look when in the area.

Barranco was one of our favorite stops in Lima. People watching, lively music, street artists, and a lovely view of "el mar".

This is a cute district with a variety of coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. Some are excellent and well worth visiting. It's also a nice place for a walk or just to people watch.
