Land of history, culture, and tradition

At around 2700m (8858ft) above sea level, Ayacucho or Huamanga is located east of the Andes, in the southern highlands of Peru. With its dry and temperate climate, Ayacucho still keeps vestiges of its pre-Hispanic, colonial, and republican past.

No other Peruvian city holds so many titles. Known as the City of Churches for its more than 30 colonial temples, and as the Peruvian Capital of Folkloric Art due to its traditional craftsmanship, Ayacucho is loaded with attractive destinations ready to amaze the visitor.

Its renowned altar pieces and sculptures made in Huamanga stone are just a sample of the city’s rich cultural heritage, which also includes the widely popular celebration of Holy Week or Easter, a festivity that draws thousands of visitors every year.
