  • Church Cathedral of Piura, located in the Plaza de Armas of Piura (main) If you want to lighten you spirit and at the same time admire the Atrium, images, decoration etc. which date from the middle ages, this is the place. Piura was the first city founded by the Spaniards during the conquest of which we now call South America and Central America.
