  • It's nice to know special places like this, so important in our history of Peru. It was special to hear the story and seeing the beautiful landscape that surrounds the pampas from the viewpoint of the Obelisk.

  • The pampas of ayacucho and its Obelisk is a visit to heaven, highly recommended. His story is the origin of the name to the main town.

  • The battlefield is interesting, if a guide setting out the course of the battle and the different strategies of the two top generals one. The Obelisk is nice for photos.
