We will start in Jirón Domeyer to begin the descent by Bajada de Baños, there you will discover how the District is formed, its growth since the pre-Hispanic stage, the relationship of the Church of the Hermitage in its foundation.

Meet the life of Chabuca Granda! One of the most outstanding Peruvian singer-songwriters, among its main themes we have "La Flor de la Canela", "José Antonio", among others. Her songs tell us about the Lima of yesteryear, the beauty of its streets, the laughter of its people, the elegance of the Chalán and the beauty of Afro-Peruvian culture. I have spent many years studying her life, her influences, how she revolutionized the rhythmic structure of the "vals peruano", her love for poetry. I have done these walks with friends and visitors for several years and now I would like to share it with you!
