Plaza de Armas, Huaraz

3.3
Like in most Peruvian cities, the main square of Huaraz is named Plaza de Armas. Admire the picturesque plaza, lined with trees and decorated with topiaries. Rest on a bench in the shade and enjoy the scenic view of the snowcapped mountains surrounding the city. View the cathedral facing the square, purchase some souvenirs, or and take in the city atmosphere and watch the locals go about their business. Plan a trip to Huaraz easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • The plaza de armas, has no greater detail, I went at night only to learn but apparently the rain makes people retire.

  • Interesting point from the center of the city, close to the main governmental entities. The green hills can be seen when there is no fog.

  • Beautiful place nice town in the Peruvian Andes.. loved it will be coming back again!!! Must visit the Huascaran And lake 69
  • Good place .you can enjoy in the evening time. You can see lot of tourist and Peruvian people. You can buy Peruvian art product near by it.
  • You can get good pictures in front of that church. There are people dressed with the traditional Andean clothes. You can take pictures with them for a symbolic gratitude. There are also llamas
  • Great place. Crazy rain
  • Nice, but when compared to the ones in Cusco or Arequipa it doesn't really shine.
