I really liked this plaza de armas, because it has a lot of greenery and flowers, and a nice church and colonial buildings overlooking it. It is a good place to sit down and relax for a little while.

A local meeting place in the center of Piura. Lots of shops and restaurants surround the plaza. Worth a visit but nothing spectacular.

Nice city square. Many restaurants around the square. Banks and money change offices. Come and sit on a bench and watch the locals.

Plaza de Armas is a small square in front of the cathedral. I visited after Sunday mass finished. Many book vendors had set up booths on the perimeter. As the sun is strong, the shade provided good cover.
