Parque Reducto No. 2

The park is located at the corner of Av. Benavides and Av. Paseo de la República. Established at exactly the same place where the Peruvian army and poorly armed militias under General Andrés Avelino Cácares set up to defend Lima from the invading Chilean troops during the War of the Pacific it pays homage to the brave men who fought until the bitter end to protect their country. The monument built in the middle of this beautiful park shows scenes of the horrific War of the Pacific and is a constant reminder of Peruvian bravery. Regularly the Municipality of Miraflores hoists up the Peruvian Flag in Parque Reducto No. 2.

The park houses as well a small museum, dedicated to General Andrés Avelino Cácares. In front of the museum one of the last remaining steam trains can be viewed that once carried passengers from Lima to the summer seaside resorts Miraflores and Chorrillos. On request you can get married here as well. Every Saturday morning from 08.00 am to 02.00 pm you find behind the Parque Reducto the "Bioferia", a small market with fresh organic products. Local organic farmers offer not only fruits and vegetables but as well bread, jam, eggs, milk products (including goat milk products), organic juices, coffee and natural cosmetics.
