Tour description provided by Viator
Visit Barranco, one of Lima's most beautiful neighborhoods, accompanied by a private guide. Discover the history behind this bohemian quarter, known for its historic architecture and local artists. See colonial art housed in a grand mansion at the Pedro de Osma Museum, and browse handicrafts made by Barranco’s artisans at a trendy crafts gallery.
Meet your private guide at your hotel, and enjoy private transportation to explore Lima's traditional district of Barranco.
Admire the mix of colonial and 19th-century architecture in this relaxed coastal district, home to art galleries, street art and restored old mansions. Hear how Barranco has been an artists' enclave for decades, and has escaped being gentrified or bulldozed. The former coastal resort town is famous for its tree-lined streets, flower-filled parks and gardens, and lovely beachfront.
Your tour takes you past Barranco’s local version of the Bridge of Sighs, a romantic wooden bridge, and continues to the Don Pedro de Osma y Pardo Museum, housed in an old family residence built in classical European style in 1906.
Admire the building’s art nouveau decor lit by chandeliers, and gardens dotted with marble sculptures and planted with palms. The collection includes sculpture, royal portraits, religious paintings and robes, Peruvian carpets and shell-encrusted furniture.
Your private tour continues to Dedalo, a sophisticated handicraft gallery. Browse the gallery’s collection of locally made artworks and crafts, ceramics, home wares and jewelry, displayed in a beautifully restored Barranco mansion.
Your private tour of one of Lima’s loveliest districts concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
