The region is the symbol of the consolidation of the emancipatory process in South America thanks to the famous battle that was fought in its pampas. Ayacucho portrays the greatest cultural renaissance of the Andes, initiated after the dark years of hiking violence and the armed and police forces. Today it is possible to fully appreciate the well conserved history through walking streets of the city of Huamanga, which maintains its colonial architecture at the height of the classic Spanish cities with its more than 30 old churches and mansions that give the impression that time has stopped.
