Description

We start our service visiting Barranco, one of the smallest districts and at the same time the Bohemian zone of Lima. We will appreciate their Plaza, Bridge of Sighs, Monument of Chabuca Granda, La Ermita and “Bajada de Baños”. Then we will pass through Chorrillos, the name of this district was made in reference to the underground fresh water streams that flowed from the cliffs to the side of the Agua Dulce beach, and because it is a fishing village; the fore was officially called San Pedro de los Chorrillos. For more than twelve hundred years, during the pre-Hispanic period, Pachacamac was the most important sanctuary on the coast. Its prestige is mainly due to its oracle, which was consulted by curacas and major lords who preceded all of ancient Peru in long pilgrimages that were part of a great Andean ritual. God Pachacamac was very feared because he was credited with the power to shake the earth. The important temples erected in its sanctuary demonstrate the importance that it had for a long time.
