The District of Ventanilla
It is one of the seven districts that make up the constitutional province of Callao in Peru. It is the largest of them and the second in population.
It has gone through a process of economic, social, cultural, political, and urban changes, mostly unplanned, presenting itself as a district with a mostly poor population, territorially disjointed, disorderly, with worrying levels of environmental pollution and that has grown at rates that have exceeded the capacity of local management.
Callao is a port city located in the constitutional province of Callao, in central-western Peru and in turn on the central coast of the Peruvian coast and in the central-western part of South America. It has the Pacific Ocean to the west and 15 kilometers to the east the Historic Center of Lima.
Most of its territory extends in a wide bay protected by the islands of San Lorenzo, El Frontón, Cavinzas, and the Redondo islet, south of the mouth of the Rímac River, but also reaches the northernmost part of the bay of Lima.
Both bays are separated by a peninsula known as La Punta. It covers an area of 148.57 km², including 17.63 km² of islands. It is located 5 meters above sea level.
Since colonial times, the port of Callao has been the largest seaport, the most important in Peru, and one of the most important in America.
Today it is the main port of the country and the Jorge Chávez International Airport, making it the main gateway to Peru. These in turn are the ‘natural’ port and airport of the city of Lima.
In terms of population, Callao is the third-largest city in the country, with more than 1 million inhabitants (only behind Lima and Arequipa).
It has a floating population of approximately 500,000 inhabitants who visit daily for family, tourist, educational and business reasons, among others. Callao has always had the privilege of receiving military visitors, especially sailors, merchants, immigrants, tourists, and other types of social currents.
