Plaza Mayor de Ayacucho, Ayacucho

(4.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Lined with both modern and colonial architecture, Plaza Mayor de Ayacucho is a favorite stop for many tourists exploring the city. In the middle of the square stands an equestrian statue of General Antonio Jose de Sucre, while an ornate cathedral shares the space with surrounding 17th- and 18th-century buildings. This area is well lit at night, so you can sightsee without worrying about safety. Special events occasionally take place here, including firework displays and religious processions. Don't miss the chance to try homemade ice cream from local vendors, created right before your eyes.

  • Very clean and very beautiful at the time of the sunrise and sunset. I was delighted to witness the hoisting of the national flag on Sunday at 8:00 am. Very emotional.
