Heart of Miraflores, Lima - Peru, 1 Bedroom unit .
Additional Location Information
While in other districts you won’t find a real city center, Miraflores has actually two. The first starts at the Ovalo Miraflores (Miraflores Roundabout) / Parque Central (Central Park) towards Av. Larco and Av. Diagonal (Oscar. R. Benavides) to the Pacific Ocean. Here you find many nice cafes, bars, shops, restaurants, hotels and hostels.
Unfortunately only a few side streets are (semi) pedestrian zones like the famous Calle Pizza with its popular restaurants, bars and clubs, so traffic is as everywhere in Lima a real topic. Be careful when crossing any street, as it doesn’t matter if you are in the right or have green on the traffic lights – Here in Lima (Peru) it is very simple: First cars than pedestrians!
Enjoy the main parks in the center, Parque Central and Parque Kennedy. These two parks unite to a big one in the heart of Miraflores with the building of the Municipality and the church of Virgen Milagrosa in the middle. This is really ‘the’ place to experience the lifestyle of Miraflores.
The other part of the city center is located at the seafront of Miraflores running along the cliffs and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Along Miraflores ‘malecon’ (coastal strip/street) you find a small oasis with many pleasant parks joining each other to a green stripe following the coastal line. The view over the Pacific Ocean is stunning. On clear days you can see from the whole bay from Chorrillos in the south right up to Callao in the north.
These are some of the parks: The Parque Salazar with the famous modern shopping and entertainment center ‘Larcomar’, Parque del Amor (Park of Love), a beautiful park dedicated to all lovers, Parque El Faro with its lighthouse overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the best place to watch the famous paragliders of Miraflores, Parque Raimondi with its huge green areas inviting for a break and of course the Skate Park.
Other parks worth a visit are the Parque Reducto No. 2, established to pay homage to the heroes who tried to defend Lima from the invading Chilean troops during the War of the Pacific and the Parque de Tradiciones, dedicated to the great Peruvian writer Ricardo Palma.
Miraflores is also well known by surfers for its beaches on the Costa Verde (green Coast). Here the ocean provides perfect winds and waves for this fantastic sport. The rocky beaches can get quite crowded in the summer month, even if swimmers prefer the sandy beaches in the south.
Miraflores is as well characterized by a vivid cultural and artistic scene with numerous theaters, cinemas, cultural centers, art galleries and museums. The Museum Amano displays the probably best collection of textiles and ceramics of the Chancay Culture.
The Enrico Poli Museum however has gathered the most impressive private collection of objects of Inca and other Pre-Columbian cultures.
The mansion, where the famous Peruvian author Don Ricardo Palma, spent his last years, was preserved as a museum, the Casa Museo Ricardo Palma.
Another interesting museum is the ‘Manos Peruanas’ (Peruvian hands). It displays popular art of Peru’s master folk artists.
The house of the historian Raúl Porras Barrenechea (Calle Colina 398) is now a research institute of the University of San Marcos and offers public lectures on a regular base. Inside the city hall you find an art gallery where exhibitions are regularly held.
The Centro Cultural Ricardo Palma (Cultural Center Ricardo Palma), the Alianza Francesa, the Centro Cultural Peruano Britanico and ICPNA - All have a busy program for all sorts of cultural events.
Of archaeological interest is the Huaca Pucllana, also known as Huaca Juliana. The archaeological complex was an administrative and ceremonial center of the Lima Culture, built around 500 AD. The complex houses the archaeological ruins itself, a small site museum, an area for workshops, a small souvenir shop and a very good restaurant.
And for all those who love shopping: Don’t only wander around on Miraflores main shopping street the Av. Larco. Discover the small side streets, like the Calle Alcanfores or Av. La Paz with beautiful small shops that invite you to stroll around.
For your souvenir shopping there is no way around the Av. Petit Thouars (block 52 to 54), starting just one block from the Ovalo Miraflores (Miraflores Roundabout). Here you find the famous markets with arts and crafts gathered from whole Peru.
