  • We walked around this square for several times - one for bus city tour, one for finding tourist police for reporting loss, and one for finding food. You can do most things here - buying souvenir, eat,...  more »
  • I would not make a point to visit the center of Ica. Visit the Vinas Quierolos vineyards and visit Huacachina, but avoid the city center. Nothing to see here, really.  more »
  • This is fairly standard plaza. There are some restaurants/cafes around it, and people offering tours to the desert in Huacachina and also tours to Paracas, but it's nothing special.  more »

  • Nothing much going on, but you can go and have a nice walk around the plaza. Surely a bunch of restaurants, banks, strip malls and bakeries around, but I would recommend taking a taxi there, since there's nearly no parking spaces and traffic can be a bit rough.
  • Plenty of great places to eat, very clean , although no as attractive as other plaza de armas ive seen
  • Very busy and beautiful square surrounded by well kept colonial buildings. Definitely worth the visit.
  • It appears every big square in Peruvian cities is called Plaza de Armas. Anyway, it's the best way as a tourist to quickly find a souvenir shop, ATM and Cevite
  • Ok
