Our next stop was to Barranco.

Barranco is a district in Lima where the rich and famous once had their beach homes. Today Barranco is a Bohemian artsy community.

We strolled along a pathway that took us to a church and park which was nice.There are some sculptures and a old church.The church is

called La Erminta and is a rundown adobe built in 1750.The chapel was burned during the war between Peru and Chili in 1882.
