Neighborhood: San Isidro

This beautiful oasis of calm amid the tumult of the modern city allows a breath of fresh air and the chance to meditate upon droplets of water springing from its fountain. Legend has it that these handsome woods sprouted from just three small branches, planted by the humble Peruvian saint, San Martín de Porras. The expanse formed part of the Limatambo hacienda belonging to the Dominican Monks. As fate would have it, the city's financial district is situated on a parcel of that land. Not only is it considered a historic site, on Fridays and Saturdays it bristles with newlyweds who choose this as a romantic backdrop for wedding pictures.
