Peru Bus Tour of Barranco David Gaines - December 24, 2019 0 Yesterday was a lot of walking around. To give our feet a rest, we did a bus tour, this tour along the coast in the Barranco area of Lima. The Hermitage of Barranco was built in the middle of the 18th century. After its destruction in the War of the Pacific, the hermitage was rebuilt in 1882. The hermitage underwent several changes since its inception. The first was declared a monument in 1955 and the second in 1972 by RS 2972 ED. Since 1974 remains closed due to earthquake damage to the structure.
