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 city had been destroyed by earthquake a new weapon place was built with a lot of goodwill. Probably nice for locals it has little interest for tourists.

  • The main church was destroyed in the earthquake in 1970 and since then is has been rebuilt. Main church is now the beautiful Iglesia de Belén. City life takes place on the adjacent main road.

  • Fancy and impressive plaza, worth a visit
  • Nice! Worth a walk and a sit! Lots of ATMs around outer edge if in need.
  • Fun, safe place, great place to buy souvenirs
  • Ugly as the rest of the town. The cathedral is made of concrete...
  • Excellent view of the Mountains
