  • Piura seemed like a nice place, its people are very friendly. but there was some disorder in the plaza by the lack of traffic lights, so we had to cross the track as we could. Its plaxa is small but cozy.

  • Nice city square. Many restaurants around the square. Banks and money change offices. Come and sit on a bench and watch the locals.
