Nature / Park Must See
Visit Parque de la Identidad Wanka and stroll through its intricate paths and statues. The park is designed to represent the culture of the pre-Incan Huanca nation, and is reminiscent of Gaudi’s Guell Park in Barcelona, only in a smaller scale. Walk along pebbled pathways that wind through lush gardens, detailed stone statues, and miniature buildings. Each architectural piece tells a story about the history and folklore of the Huanca people that once lived in the area. The park is constructed entirely of local stones and rocks and boasts detailed patterns as well as interesting sculptures and various plant life. You can plan Huancayo trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • In general, it is a place where all visitors must go. Be careful with indications that the Park is very strict in this sense

  • One of the most traditional parks in Huancayo. It shows the main folklore of the region, the most famous singers, songwriters and composers born in Huancayo and other cities of Junín. The architecture is mainly confirmed by local stones at the style of antique houses and constructions in the zone. This park also allows you to wear costumes of some dances and folkloric expressions. You can find also traditional dishes of the region, beverages as the church's and so on. You must come anyway! Admission is free. Some parking lots available.
