  • It is the Hall of the city of Huaraz, natural paradise of the world designated by international institutions. You have ornaments dating from the Republican era of the 19th century.

  • Great place. Crazy rain
  • Nice, but when compared to the ones in Cusco or Arequipa it doesn't really shine.
