Rest and relax at Plaza de Armas, Chiclayo's main square and meeting point. Situated in the heart of the city, the lively green park is overlooked by an imposing white cathedral, dating back to the 1860s. Hang out on one of the benches, enjoy the sounds of the water fountain, or do some shopping. The square also contains a tourist information booth used by several tour agencies to offer guided trips. Have a meal or refreshing drink at one of the restaurants overlooking the square, and enjoy the view of the small park and the town hall.

  • I thought that Chiclayo would have a main square, however just a main Park where the center of attention is a huge store of Ripley. The streets narrow, dark and with the ruined paths, I guess by the el Niño phenomenon that flooded the city, however, after touring several cities in Peru this is the q least I liked.

  • Virtually the only modern is Pimentel with large buildings and its pier of 700 meters. that it is still preserved. Puerto Eten is more traditional, the houses are colonial type of a floor with patio and vreja and also, cib square its roundabout. Port Santa Rosa is not worth to visit since it is only a fishing pier and the beach is ugly. In Chiclayo always makes strong heat, but also there is enough wind at certain times.
