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.
