Miraflores

Miraflores (Lima) – this is Lima’s most tourist-friendly and upscale district. Like other coastal areas by Lima like Chorrillos and Barranco districts, Miraflores attracted weathy settlers especially during the 19th century. Major thoroughfares like Via Expresa, also known as Paseo de la República or Zanjón (the express highway), and the Circuito de Playas de la Costa Verde (Beach Circuit of the Green Cost) helped this area grow commercially during the 1960s. In more recent years, real estate development has resulted in a number of skyscrapers being built there, not to mention shopping areas (like the Larcomar mall), flower-filled parks, movie houses, art galleries, and of course the beach.
