Lima´s balconies

Of all the architecture of the historic center of Lima what I like the best is its balconies. They are everywhere around downtown and I can not help taking pictures of them. Here, a glimpse.

Lima…”tal como fue en sus años más propicios, en los dos primeros siglos de su fundación…indiana capital de las macizas y altas torres, de los miradores y las azoteas, de los azulejos y las celosías caladas…arrullada por el dorado repicar de sus sesenta iglesias, y por el incienso y los cánticos de sus infinitas procesiones”.
Paisajes Peruanos, José de la Riva-Aguero.
