  •  There is a super old monument called monument of freedom La Pola, marble statue, which dates from 1870 monument considered oldest of Piura, beautiful. Very cool place to sit and relax.

  • Whenever I go to the Center, I visit the plaza with a rich ice cream or cremolada of a place that is there on the same square. I don't like Protestants coming to preach with megaphones on Sunday.
