LIMA | Parque Municipal de Barranco is a popular park in Lima’s Barranco district and together with Plaza de Armas Barranco, the area’s main square, is a hub of activity in the area. It was inaugurated on 13 February 1899 as a park and public meeting place, and serves that purpose to this day.

It features the Barranco Municipal Library (Biblioteca Municipal de Barranco) which dates back to the late 19th century and today operates as a public library, and the Iglesia de la Santisima Cruz, which was built in 1944. There’s also a stage for performing arts, and an assortment of benches and children’s activities. Towards the centre of the park is the “The Danaide”, a fountain that represents one of the 49 Daughters of Danaus who killed their husbands on their wedding night in Greek mythology.

During the evenings and weekend the area is filled with locals who flock here to go to church service, to frequent the many food trucks that set up, or to simply hang out. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes in the area, which makes it a great meeting point.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
