El Parque del Amor
El Parque del Amor or Love Park is located right by the Pacific Ocean in the Miraflores district of Lima, Peru. The park is partly surrounded by mosaic walls with romantic quotes and it draws newlyweds and lovers to pose in front of a large sculpture in the middle of the park.
You will find the park following the Malecon de la Reserva after the bridge at the intersection with Malecon Balta. It is not far from the Larcomar Shopping Center.
The large sculpture was unveiled in 1993 and depicts the sculptor himself, Victor Delfín, and his wife embracing and kissing each other.
To see more of Delfín’s paintings and sculptures, visit Delfín’s studio in the artistic Barranco District of Lima. It is now a bed-and-breakfast run by his daughter.
When to Go
Basically all city tours stop here, which can make the small park crowded at times. But the tour buses never stop for long and there are usually some quiet spots around.
It is, of course, most romantic here at sunrise and sunset.
