  • Huaraz's central and most important square similar to many others in South America. Not particularly beautiful but full of life.

  • 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.
