Landmark Tourist Spot
Take a break from Inca trails and visit Ayacucho town, a thoroughly modern city center and vibrant hub of activity, culture, and history. The city houses 33 churches, each one representing a year of Jesus Christ’s life, but the impressive main cathedral at the heart of town stands out. Facilities, such as money exchange bureaus, free WiFi around park benches, and a tourist center all combine to remove the stress from your visit. Check the schedule of events, as the town frequently hosts parades through its streets.
