  • The beautiful and elegant Cathedral is located in the Plaza de armas of Huamanga it more interesting that it is very similar to the Cathedral of Cuzco. This Cathedral shines the plaza de armas and next to it is the municipality of Huamanga and square backyard portals and the malls most important of the city (as banks - restaurants and hotel Via Via) on either side of the Plaza sow will admire the beauty of Cathedral and to impress us most see its interior covered with gold.
