Piura
The Essential
Interesting
Whether for its colonial architecture, outstanding geographical location (the town was built by the Spanish in the heart of the Sechura desert) or for the appeal of the surrounding villages, Pirua is definitely worth a detour. Admire its churches and casonas, before pausing on the delightful Plaza de Armas. The nearby village of Catacaos and Chulucanas sell and manufacture lovely craft objects, while beautiful sandy beaches abut Punta Sal and Cabo Blanco.
