Barranco district of Lima
Barranco – romance and a touch of nostalgia in Lima
Museums and galleries
… there are so many in Barranco, and it would be difficult to say which one is the most beautiful. Perhaps the Pedro de Osma Museum, which has an ingenious collection of colonial art and is itself housed in one of the beautiful colonial houses surrounded by magnificent gardens?
Or MATE, the Asociacion Mario Testino, a homage to one of Peru’s most famous artists and the only permanent exhibition of his works? Or rather the Museo Galeria Arte Popular de Ayucucho with a collection of modern art?
Are you looking for a high quality souvenir of your holiday in Peru and would like to support local artists? In the Lucia de la Puente art gallery, there are works of art by Peruvian artists that can compete with international greats!
If you like to have a good coffee, you will be amazed by the Bisetti factory. Here, not only since 1958, the best Peruvian coffee is served here, the coffee is also freshly roasted daily. Bisetti stands for high quality and is committed to ensuring that the Peruvian delicacy is also well received by the broad Peruvian public (Peruvians are not coffee drinkers).
The Bisetti roasting house is located in Avenida Pedro de Osma 116, less than 100 meters from the Parroquia La Santísima Cruz. A visit here is worthwhile in any case.
Peru is one of the 10 largest coffee producers in the world and produces the world’s most certified organic coffee.
