Huaraz | Plaza de Armas with Catedral de Huaraz

WI_pe041.jpg

View across the central square of Huaraz. The capital city of the Ancash region was badly affected by the earthquake of 31 May 1970 and had to be rebuilt afterwards, so that it is characterized by modern architecture. Also the cathedral shown in the background of the scene was damaged and rebuilt.
