Pampas is the one
I also went Pampas de Ayacucho Historical Sanctuary on a recommendation and I need to say that I was enjoyed very much. I am from Spain, so the language wasn't a problem but it was incredible to learn so much in one afternoon only. I took lots of photos and would like to return one day.

One for the historians
Friends that had visited Ayacucho before wrote down the details of Pampas de Ayacucho Historical Sanctuary for us and it was the first attraction we visited shortly after landing. We asked for a guide, who spoke immaculate English, to take us around and he was more than happy to answer our questions and even asked us if we wanted any photos taken as opposed to us having to pester him!

The Andes' oldest known urban centre
We were pretty satisfied with the historical offerings in Ayacucho but felt as though we were missing out by not completing the 45 minute trip out of the city to Huari/Wari - which is home to the Andes' oldest urban center and various ruins. There is a museum to explain everything and I would advise finding a reliable taxi driver that will happily wait for you to finish your tour before taking you back to your hotel in Ayacucho.

High quality wool and similar material
We were told of the mainly family-run businesses on Plaza Santa Anna that were full of high quality wool, carpets, embroideries and much more. Understandably there was little English spoken by the staff but they were lovely and gave us a great price on our purchases. Every taxi driver will know this area.

Fine coffee while watching the world go by
Travelling alone gave me a lot of time to myself and allowed me to perfect the art of people watching. In Ayacucho, my skills were honed while drinking coffee around the Centro Turistico Cultural San Cristobal. As the name suggests, this area is for tourists, which means that it is a little expensive, but a great place to watch the world go by and meet others.
