  • The plaza de armas of Cajamarca is small but nice, has several local and also historical sites to discover. Around there are other churches in addition to the Cathedral, as well as hotels, restaurants, ice cream parlors, etc. and tourist sites as the fourth of the rescue or some museums related to the churches you have to turn. It is nice to go at night, although it gives a little of worth see how square is super abandoned and full of traders who sometimes are a little aggressive with the public.
