Lima’s most vibrant district. Now home to many of Peru’s best-known artists, musicians, designers and photographers, Barranco first emerged in the 19th-century as a fashionable seaside retreat for Limeño aristocracy. They summered here amidst the salty air and a drier, warmer microclimate, as the high cliffs of Chorrillos shield Barranco from Lima’s cold and humid southern winds. Families like the Garcia Bedoyas built grand Belle Époqueand Republican style houses around the area’s landscaped parks and along elegant avenues. When 20th century urban expansion encroached upon this elite enclave, those wealthy Limeñans moved out and squatters took up residence in the abandoned, decaying mansions. Barranco’s fortunes shifted again in the new millennium thanks to a dynamic migration among Lima’s arts community, including fashion photographer Mario Testino, Nobel Prize winning author Mario Vargas Llosa and gallerist Lucia de la Puente. Fresh coats of paint on many of the area’s most charming colonial houses signal this vibrant revival.

The Hermitage – formerly this Church was a small chapel to which humble fishermen and travelers went, who taking a break to their workings asked for the God intermediation. It was erected in adobe and quincha in the middle of century XVIII thanks to the Caicedo benefactor, a baker whose devotee wife, miraculously heals by the intercession of the cross that is venerated here. Rebuilt by the chaplain Manuel de la Fuente Chavez in 1882 after it was set on fire by the Chilean army.
