What I liked most about the plaza is that locals clearly take to it. There are armies of shoe-shiners, young and older couples, parents with kids -- all "despite" the iron fences around the lawns that prevent the latter from getting soiled. I also loved the view of the plaza from Via Via Restaurant's balcony at night.

You have to try to imagine the battle that took place there, but there is nothing that actually refers to it except the fairly recent memorial. While this can be of interest to Peruvian or Bolivian nationals, for European travellers there are certainly more interesting sights around. The site is more of a tourist trap.

Not really affected by mass tourism, Ayacucho is a beautiful town a day from Cusco or Lima. The plaza , the many churches, the restaurants and reasonably priced hotels make Ayacucho worth visiting. It is also a great base to visit a beautiful nontouristy area of Peru, including Huancavelica, Andahuaylas, Pampachiri, Huancayo. There are good tour offices in Ayacucho that take you on day trips to ruins and parks.

We are retired archaeologists and we went to Ayacucho specifically to visit Wari. It did not disappoint - but it's not for everybody. The little on-site museum is downright terrible, with very few artifacts and very little contextual information on what they do have. Signage around the site is also non-existent. There is nothing to tell you what you are looking at. A guide is probably advisable for most visitors, though you really have no idea if the guide will be informed or accurate. In fairness to all, there is relatively little published information about this capital of the massive Wari Empire. Definitely worth a visit if you have any interest in Peruvian prehistory and the great cities of the world.

It is always included in the city sightseeings but I did not take my breathe away as every other sight that I visit. Still the Christ is spiritual and a picture is nice to be taken.

Located on a spot with fantastic scenery, the excavations are currently only very limited in extend. One can still easily see the several wavy walls in the landscape. Further is a round, presumably ceremonial, site excavated as well as partially the graveyard. Excavations are ongoing, like on many sites in Peru, and the site might become more interesting to visit with time. The Wari were a complex culture and the Inca´s would later use the road system started by them. The on-site museum has very little of interest, but the museum in Ayacucho house many finds.

The mothers of the disappeared have done a great job interpreting the time of terror for people from outside Ayacucho. The personal exhibits and stories are moving (sometimes gut wrenching) and the guide helps you to understand more about this formative period in Peruvian history. This is a 'must see' if you want to work or spend time in this area.

Pasamos por la reserva en nuestro camino a Andamarca. A la ida nos gustó tanto lo que vimos que decidimos parar en el museo a nuestro regreso. Lindos animales que se ven saludables y libres. Las alpaquitas se cruzan derepente por el camino. Los tienes super cerca.
El museo chico pero bien organizado.
Nos enteramos que hay un mirador de cóndores cerca y que en la reserva puedes pernoctar
