NileGuide Expert tip:

There's panels showcasing photos of the bird species that live there.

Description:

This park had its origins in an old, huge olive plantation established during the Viceroyalty years. Visiting means taking a fresh, relaxing break from the stressed city's routines: legends state that the Peruvian Saint San Martin de Porras was one of the founders of this place, which actually used to be part of the Limatambo farm, owned by the Dominican order. Nowadays, it is very popular among families, neighborhood residents and birdwatchers; it is also a usual scenery for newlywed couples, who come here to have their first photos taken here, especially under a legendary tree that is supposed to be more than 300 years old..
