Fodor's Review

What locals call Parque Miraflores is actually two parks. A smaller section, near the roundabout, is Parque 7 de Junio, whereas the rest of it is Parque Kennedy. To the east of Parque Kennedy stands Miraflores's stately Iglesia de la Virgen Milagrosa (Church of the Miraculous Virgin), built in the 1930s on the site of a colonial church. The equally young colonial-style building behind it is the Palacio Municipal de Miraflores (town hall). Two open-air cafés along Parque Kennedy's eastern edge serve decent food and drink. At night, a round cement structure in front of those cafés called La Rotonda fills up with handicraft vendors, and the park becomes especially lively. Street vendors sell popcorn and traditional Peruvian desserts such as picarones (fried donuts bathed in molasses), mazamora (a pudding made with blue corn juice and fruit) and arroz con leche (rice pudding).
