Parque del Amor (Park of Love)

If you're looking for a nice spot to watch the sunset, come for a stroll along this small and charming park overlooking the coast. Flowers and colorful benches bedeck the area while a big sculpture of a couple kissing helps set the romantic mood.

Do & See

Kick off your visit to Lima with a walk around the colorful and bustling city center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site--home to many historical buildings and churches. Delve into the country's rich past in one of the many museums around. Once you’ve soaked up the local history, explore the city's districts: Miraflores on the beachfront is the trendy one, while Barranco is more artsy and bohemian. Day trips to ancient sites in the surroundings are always fun too.
