Plaza de Armas, Pucallpa

(130+ reviews on the web)
Spend some time at Plaza de Armas, a modern square in a lush vegetation setting with a striking obelisk at its center. Pay special attention to the plaza's impressive gleaming white fountain and monument, erected in tribute to Pucallpa's founders and pioneers. This ornamental fountain features granite sculptures, a row of flags, and three pools all representing the customs of the region's native people. Pay a visit to the Pucallpa Cathedral, located opposite the square, to supplement your time at the plaza. Plaza de Armas is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Pucallpa Edition.
