Justiniano Borgoño Castañeda (September 5, 1836 – January 27, 1921) was a Peruvian soldier and politician who briefly served as Interim Caretaker of Peru, officially as the President of the Government Junta, during 1894.

Borgoño was born in Trujillo, Peru, and became a military officer, fighting in the War of the Pacific.[1]

He entered politics as a member of the Constitutional Party. He served as the second vice president from 1890 to 1894.[2] Upon the death of Remigio Morales Bermúdez in 1894, Borgoño was appointed caretaker president until the next election.[3] He was succeeded as President by Andrés Avelino Cáceres. He died in Lima, Peru.
