Peruvian politician who was Mayor of Lima, the capital city of Peru, from 2003 to 2010. He became Mayor of Lima again in 2015, after being elected for a third nonconsecutive term with 51% of the popular vote, for a term that lasted until December 2018. He ran for President of Peru in 2000, prior to his mayoral campaign, and in 2011, coming in fifth place with 9% of the vote.

Castañeda attracted criticism for various policies seen as retrogressive attempts to erase the legacy of his predecessor, Susana Villarán. These include erasing murals commissioned by Villarán, undoing reforms she had made to Lima's public transit system, and barring the public from city council meetings. Indigenous people In Lima feared that they may also be evicted from homes that Villarán had given them.
