    The main square of Chachapoyas is very nice and quiet. It retains the characteristics of a plazita from people who, at least I who live in the capital, I appreciate when I travel. The color that prevails in the historic center is white. Retailers have their black signs. This combination gives a singularity to the place. The balconies in the houses are another thing that my spouse and I loved. There are different range and type in outlying services. All clean and safe. I hope that he is still preserving that travelers and tourists to appreciate its beauty.

    In the surroundings of the plaza de armas is the Museum which is very interesting, well mounted and it is free, the wonderful thing about this city is the order and cleanliness, are not allowed the motorcycle taxis, congratulate their authorities.

    The historical centre fortunately has not given to the avatars of modernity. I know that thanks to the management of a good Mayor of German nationality and the same people, motorcycle taxis in the Center and neon signs are not permitted. Thanks to this city retains the traditional so beautiful architecture that characterizes it, although the surroundings are being built in any way. A penalty. People greet each other and are very willing to help the traveller.
