The Olive Grove "El Olivar"

Parque El Olivar

The olive grove "El Olivar" is probably San Isidro's most valuable treasure. Declared National Monument in December 1959 El Olivar is a beautiful park that like no other area in San Isidro represents this district.

The colonial olive tree plantation stands not only for the colonial and republican history and tradition but is also a green lung for the heavy polluted Lima. In and around the green oasis you find the municipal government, the famous library, an art gallery, the lagoon of El Olivar and beautiful mansions from the beginning of the 20th century.

For all bird lovers: the municipality of San Isidro put up signs showing birds you can watch in the olive grove; therefore keep your eyes open, it's amazing how many different and exotic species you can find in the middle of a city like Lima.
