Plaza de Armas, Yanque

#5 of 19 in Things to do in Colca Canyon
Don't miss Plaza de Armas, a vibrant square and the epicenter of activity at the heart of this charming, quiet village. From the square, visit the small local community cathedral dating back to the late 18th century, a museum, and several alfresco cafes. Several handicraft vendors selling souvenirs and textiles populate the square every day, as well as local people walking llamas and alpacas around for photo opportunities. Take your camera along, as you'll have stunning views of the nearby mountain vista from the square. Put Plaza de Armas into our Yanque day trip planning app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Yanque.
