  • Bella Piura city, with its gentle main square where residents and tourists looking for the shade of the trees to shelter from the unrelenting Sun piurano, delicious gastronomy and beautiful weather. Each day grows more beautiful residential areas but abandoned is Piura! The road that brings us from the North, from Talara is a disaster and lasts for two hours more travel that should be 5 from the border, also more streets and avenues also shattered in the the motorcycle taxis that burst and create chaos within the city. A real shame reach sightseeing to Piura and find disorder, bumps, dust and impossible traffic. Are those who responsible for repairing the roads and ordering disorder?

  • We return to the beautiful city of Piura and we were able to finish this beautiful main square, fully recovered from beginning of year rains flood. This square is the point of meeting and gathering of citizens to the sunset, also place some shows and live events. On Sundays it is good to emphasize that on this site the flag is raised, is sung the national anthem and is made a March of some military Institute accompanied by any public or private educational institution.
