Yanahuara street

Besides the historic center of the city, around the Plaza de Armas and Santa Catalina convent, there is another neighborhood that’s worth visiting. Yanahuara has great hotels, restaurants, a beautiful plaza and mirador and it has several streets with buildings made entirely from sillar.

It’s a great place for a photographer or a person who likes to walk through narrow cobblestone streets that gleam white in any weather.

Transport: This neighborhood is about a 20 minute walk from the historic center. Just walk across Puente Grau and you’re there.
