A Gaudi Inspired Park In Peru – Lima’s Parque del Amor

There’s a small park that gets a lot of attention located in Miraflores on the Malecon de la Reserva (a six mile cliff top pedestrian walkway). It’s the Parque del Amor and it’s just after the bridge at the intersection with Malecon Balta. This attractive little park is dedicated to Lima’s lovers and it provides a stunning view of the Bay of Lima from high up on the cliff top.

The park took its inspiration from Parc Güell in Barcelona, Spain designed by the famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí in 1926. In the middle of this beautifully Lima park stands a sculpture by the famous Peruvian sculptor Víctor Delfín entitled El Beso (The Kiss). To add to the lovers theme there’s a major event in the park each Valentine’s Day where young couples compete for money in the longest kiss contest staged beneath the statue.
