Plaza de Armas de Iquitos, Iquitos

Landmark · Tourist Spot
Stroll through Plaza de Armas de Iquitos, an attractive urban park and public garden. Relax under the palm trees surrounding the central monument, a tribute to the Peruvians who lost their lives during the Pacific War (1879-83). In the eastern portion of the square, you'll find a fountain with timed jets of water, decorated with colored lights. Plan my trip to Iquitos with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • The loud noise making teenagers should be directed to nearby river. The plaza is good, apart from these noisy teenagers. The tourists should feel safe here.  more »

  • Relatively clean, plenty to see, and good for a relaxing visit. On weekends the fountains are running which makes for a more vibrant atmosphere and there are typically ice cream vendors and others selling their goods. Fun place to spend some time.
  • Is the one of the most popular and principals plazas in Iquitos city. Its a good place to visit and take pictures with your friends.
  • Very popular local city park especially weekends and holidays. Plenty of street vendors adding to the nice and friendly Iquiteño atmosphere. Enjoy it.
  • The main plaza in iquitos. Everything happens in this area. Parades on Sunday and nightly activity 7 days a week
  • Very much like other plazas de armas around Peruvian towns. Best visited on Sunday as that's when the families use the square.
