Baños de Miraflores

October 22nd, 2010 |

Back when Miraflores was a small seaside town some way outside Lima, long before the construction of the highway that runs along the foot of the cliffs of the Costa Verde, the well-to-do of Lima would walk down the cobbled street of the Bajada Balta to the beach resort to spend a summer’s afternoon by the sea.

Teatro Municipal de Lima

October 12th, 2010 |

Opened in 1920 with ownership then transferred to the city in 1929, the Municipal Theatre was considered among the best on the continent. Suffering complete destruction in a fire that left only a shell in 1998, long delayed restoration has finally been completed with the re-inauguration taking place on the 11th of October 2010.
