Like in most Peruvian cities, the main square of Huaraz is named Plaza de Armas. Admire the picturesque plaza, lined with trees and decorated with topiaries. Rest on a bench in the shade and enjoy the scenic view of the snowcapped mountains surrounding the city. View the cathedral facing the square, purchase some souvenirs, or and take in the city atmosphere and watch the locals go about their business. Plan a trip to Huaraz easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
Plaza de Armas Reviews
Piazza centrale e più importante di Huaraz simile a molte altre del Sud America. Non particolarmente bella ma piena di vita. more »Huaraz's central and most important square similar to many others in South America. Not particularly beautiful but full of life.
Es el mismo centro de la ciudad de Huaraz. Un resumen de la historia y arquitectura del paraíso natural de la humanidad. more »It is the very center of the city of Huaraz. A summary of the history and architecture of humanity's natural paradise.
It is a nice park to visit when the sun is out. You can also walk from here to the oldest barrio in the city. There were major earthquakes in the 40s and 70s that leveled the town. Only a small area survived. It is close to the anthropological museum as well.
Lovely little Park in front of the Cathedral. 5 minutes from the centre, nice place to chill out and watch life go by. Very safe and no hawkers.
