Every city in Peru has its own traditions, customs and food. All around Peru one of the most famous meals is called Pollo a la Brasa (as simple as rotisery chicken) In constitution plaza Huancayo there is a rest call La Leña. Definetly one of the best all around Peru, people judge and qualify pollo a la Brasa for the flavour on chicken for sure but also for the chips (papas) the best here.
After a meal like that you want something to help digestion, as I went out at night before going to bed the best was to have a classic drink in Huancayo. Calientito. But you have to be careful, in huancayo most emolienteros (emoliente is a classic hot drink with local herbs) they serv you calientito with a illegal alcohol. You have to be careful about this.
In the same Constitution plaza, in the corner of Real and Breña there is Jose Herrera as known as "BARBA" he will serv you his classic medicinal special hot drink, just for 3 soles. Is the best to warm up of the cold weather in Huancayo plus it helps digestion and many others health problems you may have as a cold, respiratory and digestion problems.

Guys. There is a lot to do in Huancayo. What I'm telling you is just about the plaza at night.

Enjoy it!!!

If you are in Huancayo, you will probably visit this park just because everyone does. However, the surroundings are very busy, lots of traffic and noisy. Not a lot of nature around it. The arches are nice and of course feeding the pigeons is an enjoyable past time here. Take your time, walk around, and make the best of it.

Amazing place to visit with your family and friends, is really quiet and fun. Nice restaurants close by and you will enjoy the nice local food. Try always to get pachamanca in Huancayo is just simply delicious

Like many central plazas in Peruvian towns (often called Plaza de Armas or Plaza Major) this is a pleasant place to people watch. The church is pretty but the architecture of the other buildings is fairly modern and not particularly scenic.

There is an interesting set of arches - hard to describe - like two arches at 90 degree angles to each other intersecting at the top - like the poles of a dome tent. I enjoyed taking photos of the church through the arches.

Otherwise there are several hotels, tour agencies, and cafes/restaurants surrounding the plaza.

Basically a typical central plaza, pleasant but nothing spectacular.
