PIER GRAU


The project of building a pier in the riverside of the sea was the mayor's initiative Pedro Fuxa. The pier built in the first years of the second decade of the XX century, had the following dimensions: 400 m. of long, 10 m. of wide and 1.50 m. of high. The work cost 59.50 Peruvian pounds.

The pier in its beginnings was wooden and for its proximity to the sea suffered damages in the one boarded when the tide was violent. The low part was used by unscrupulous people to make its corporal necessities.

The works of the new pier began in the year from 1941 to initiative of the Meeting of Marine Defense. It was inaugurated by the president of the Republic Don Manuel Grassland and Ugarteche. The longitude of this pier was of 370 m.l. It was affirmed on 740 rails. Their width was of 12 m.

The floor is of blocks of concrete. For the west he/she has a rail of 1 m. of high, with beacons of illumination each 25 m. of concrete. It has seven pergolas that allow the free access to the beach. Throughout the walk there are 52 wrought iron bankings with seats and to support wooden and 27 gardeners.

They skirt the Pier Grau two plazuelas of architectural good pleasure built for homenajear to two national illustrious heroes: Don Miguel Grau and Don Francisco Bolognesi. In this walk wooden beautiful houses are located that were prefabricated in United States of North America. Their constructions and designs evoke European distant spas of the XIX century.

Being located in front of the sea gives him/her an expression special paisajista. It is the focus of tourist and historical attraction, not only for their proximity to the sea but also for the valuable inheritance received through the republican large houses that he/she testifies the times that he/she lived and the expression of their architectural evolution.

People that visits this walk contemplate embelesadamente the immensity of the sea. The afternoons are of dream in this walk, because, it is enjoyed a singular show when looking at the setting of the sun. It is so beautiful this natural phenomenon that the writer Fernando Gonzáles Viaña has coined the following sentence: " The sun of Pacasmayo is another sun."
