  • Are located the Cathedral... restaurants... shopping and tourist... They encourage you to walk in its entirety and not get tired of doing so... very quiet and cosy...

  • It is very nice, although it is not spectacular (in my opinion, is most beautiful of Lima but much nicer than the of Cusco). At Carnival time, looks more decorated like the business of his round, which put them decorative masks. The churches are very beautiful at night, lit.

  • This place is a milestone in Peruvian history, more than four hundred years ago, a group of Spaniards captured the Inca Atahualpa and with it the fall of one of the Empires more impressive in American history. The square is surrounded by history, very near the fourth rescue, also a spectacular lookout called cerro Santa Poland, and colonial architecture shines with the churches that surround it.
