Puente Piedra is one of the northernmost districts of Lima. He is one of those areas that is still growing economically. The name of the district has a historical background. Approximately 60 years before the arrival of the Spaniards, the Inca Tupac Yupanqui had roads and bridges built to expand his empire and conquer the valley where Lima is located today. There is also talk of a large stone placed on a channel so that the Incas could cross it.
When the Spanish arrived in Peru and began to conquer the country, the Incas destroyed the bridges and roads, the stone mentioned above landed on the canal. The district is not a point of tourist contact, but is reserved mainly for the local population. But they also do what they can to make the district attractive, especially with green areas of small parks. It does not hurt to go up there during a longer visit to Lima and take a look at the district. However, if you travel by car, it is likely that you are arriving to the district because part of the Pan-American, the highway system that connects Alaska with Tierra del Fuego, passes directly.
