  • If not for the sculpture of the main Park, it is just one Park, I found greater cultural relevance to visit.

  • We are briefly stepped out during our city tour to the city's main square. We don't have a fast run and were within two minutes already finished this square. There wouldn't be special.

  • It is small and does not have much to the surroundings. It is very noisy the immense traffic product. It is quite dark and the worst following blocks... darker, less busy and the truth gives the impression that you steal at any time.

  • I will always find peace at this place.
  • 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
  • Nice and quiet place
  • Very busy and beautiful square surrounded by well kept colonial buildings. Definitely worth the visit.

Where to stay in Ica

Like a true desert oasis, the city of Ica tends not to worry about providing luxury facilities and services for its visitors. Instead, the comfort of its accommodations rests in their convenient placement on a spot of green in the middle of the desert. Choose from simple hotels and backpacker-friendly hostels in the middle of town, and a number of relaxed resort-style hotels dotted along the main arterial roads leading out of the urban area.
