Chorrillos: large, the white letters on the slope covered with green point to the visitor where he is. The district south of Lima is not a romantic place in itself, but the sea is there. And in how much the sea rises and falls, it can be read in Chorrillos.
During the War of Independence Chorrillos was the port of the Peruvians, the Spaniards occupied the official port occupied by Callao. After independence in 1821, Chorillos became a resource. Today, Chorrillos is still the part of Lima that visits the local population to escape the great agitated city.
The beach, the promenade with colorful houses high above the cliff, while down on the water rock boats, a small harbor, all this gives Chorrillos his style. The visit is also worthwhile at night, when the sun shines in the Pacific, because Chorrillos has a point of reference: the Pope’s Cross, a cross-shaped steel structure, which rises on the coast, and in the night, brightly lit, wide is visible.
