Our son had been in Lima but missed going here. He suggested that we head for Barranco and it was fun to explore. The Bridge of Sighs is a destination for many however after we found it, we were more intrigued by the houses and businesses which were along the street/path going under and beside it. On the main square of the district, there is a library - and to the right of the library is a small tourist information office where you can get a map with historic/significant buildings. They also have access to locked toilets. We did walk down to the sea, which is reached by walking under the Bridge of Sighs and just going down, down, down and over the highway on a little bridge. The beach is not nice at all BUT I rescued a sea urchin - placed it gently back in the water. Then, a few minutes later, I found a blue sea urchin shell on top of some gravelly rocks. You cannot make this kind of stuff up. I do not recommend eating at the big Chinese restaurant although it is cheap and definitely a local destination.
