Go on Sunday
May 2017 • Solo
Locals and people from Huaraz come to the plaza to enjoy a Sunday icecream (about 75% of everybody on the square had an icecream in their hand! There are three icecream shops around the square.) or just enjoy a stroll. Sunday is great for people watching. Just sit on a bench and let people pass by. Local women are dressed in their traditional attire, it is a very colourful place. Sunday is market day (feria) so the town is busy and fun. Combis from Huaraz go every 10 min.

Original Peruvian market square

There are hundreds of almost identical town squares but this one felt somewhat better, maybe because of the market in the streets around that gavd somr colourfull spice to the whole experience.

Lovely Andean Plaza
Apr 2012 • Friends
The Plaza de Armas of Carhuaz is charming, with palmtrees, flowers and the usual fountain in the middle. Come in the morning when the light is best and make sure to try the local traditional ice cream which is totally delicious! The plaza is the perfect place to sit and eat your ice cream in the sun while watching the colourfully dressed local people pass by. The nearby market is a great place to visit also, especially on Sundays when people from all over come to buy and sell goods.
