Plaza de Armas when translated means Parade Square. It is what the main square or central park is called in a majority of Hispanic American cities. It is usually designed with a militaristic grid pattern. Most of these squares have governmental, cultural or historic buildings surrounding them. There are also churches around them.
Plaza de Armas in Huanuco is located in Haunuco, Peru. Unlike most, this square tends to have a modern feel to it. The plaza is a peaceful, picturesque setting with spectacular views of the Andean mountains.
It is lined with various souvenir shops, kiosks, benches, a water fountain and jacaranda and ficus trees.Places nearby:
