Ayacucho Info

The Ayacucho department is located in the southern Andes and contains a number of tourist sites attracting many visitors. The capital city, also known as Ayacucho is said to have a church on every street corner. These churches were built by the Spanish in the colonial period and contain much artwork. The department is home to various Wari archeological sites. The cities and towns of Ayacucho

San Francisco Cathedral

specialize in creating and selling handicrafts. Many of the handicrafts are created in Huamanga stone a stone native to the department. The Vilcashuaman Archeological Site is an important Incan site.

Ayacucho Tourist Information

The Ayacucho department is crossed by two mountain ranges that divide it into three geographic parts: the altiplanic region towards the south, extreme highlands in the center, and tropical jungles in the northeast. The topography varies greatly as well as the climate.
It is known as “The city of churches” since people say that there is a church on practically every corner in Ayacucho. The Cathedral, the Company of Jesus Christ, San Francisco of Assisi, Santo Domingo, and Santa Clara are some of the most beautiful Colonial churches in the city.
The inhabitants are descendents of the powerful Waris who lived in a large part of this territory between the sixth and twelfth centuries and left the Wari citadel, an urban and commercial center, to posterity. You can also visit the Vilcashuaman Archeological Site, an important Incan administrative and religious center.

A good time to visit Ayacucho is during Holy Week since theirs is the most exciting and spectacular celebration in the entire country. Ayacucho, land of artisans, also offers its visitors impressive works of art like the retablos, small portable shrines that represents Andean scenes, Sarhua boards, which has worked into it one’s family tree, and carvings of alabaster, a material also known as Huamanga stone..
