It's the cat's meow, a corner of the central park of Lima's upscale seaside Miraflores district.
About 120 felines populate the sidewalks and grass, lounge in the trees and shelter behind the grates of at the Church of the Miraculous Virgin, where they are fed by devoted volunteers.
Tourists pose for pictures with the cats, which are generally friendly and accept the caresses of strangers.
