Once a town located south of Lima and accessed by train or tram, Barranco is now a bohemian district, full of old houses where you can find restaurants, pubs and art galleries.

All 3D models have been made to be seen using Google Earth. Download this freeware software here ( ) and take a trip through the streets of Barranco and view its most distinctive buildings.

This is an independent project. No person or organization has supported or sponsored its creation, and it is intended to focus attention of institutions and authorities to preserve the monumental architecture of the district, that currently are very neglected and damaged.

This project won the 2010 Google "Model Your Town" competition.

19.- Domeyer, Cavero & Junín streets, La Tapa Restaurant, La Posada del Ángel III bar, Domeyer hostel.

In the block between El Libertador street (which converts into Pedro de Osma street), Domeyer, Junín and Cavero streets, there are some houses with more than 100 years old. There we can find the restaurant La Tapa, the bar La Posada del Angel III, Domeyer hostel, among others.

This model was very laborious because of the size of the block and because there’s a condominium in Junin street that increases the number of houses and facades, in addition to irregular and inaccurate terrain. For this model I used large number of poligons and 44 phototextures, despite which weighs just 544 kb.
