  • The Center is beautiful and will be even more beautiful. There is currently a reconstruction site of the plaza, as well as on some other places in the city.

  • I was surprised by the center of Chachapoyas. Well-preserved, with its streets narrow, cobblestone streets and white-painted houses. At night the lighting is spectacular and gives an air of back to the past. That is missing if you have more life, cute souvenir shops, bars and cafes. With that it would be complete!

  • Quaint and quiet. The center of Chachapoyas does not offer great attractions, beyond the square main (I was being reformed and we could not explore it) and its pedestrian. Churches and museums are usually closed (at least were during our stay). There are numerous offers of food places, tourist companies and local shopping in the downtown area.
