Re. Mesmerising
For anyone interested in religious sites like the one that Michael talked about, the Virgen Inmaculada de la Concepcion has been recommended to me by my brother-in-law's Peruvian wife. I haven't had the chance to visit the country yet and don't speak Spanish, but I imagine it has something to do with the immaculate conception!

Any tourists that have visited Huancayo before will back my claim that most of the attractions in the city are related to religion. Even if you have no interest in Catholicism though, the city's cathedral is mesmerising and among the greatest pieces of architecture I saw during my time in South America.

Incas del Peru
This tour group, INCAS DEL PERU, was fantastic and is for all of those that wish to do more with their time in Peru than merely looking at monuments. I got the chance to get to know people from different countries while learning more about the Andeans and Inca culture.

The Sunday market
I really hope that you are lucky enough to be in Huancayo on a Sunday as this is when the market dominates Huancavelica street. Even if you aren't willing to buy any of the goods, there is plenty of food such as tropical fruit and even guinea pig!

Huancayo's most famous park
Parque de Identidad is this city's most famous park and the locals love it for its strange, artistic designs that are popular with the young ones. The park is right in the city centre and as long as you remember the name in Spanish, someone will point you in the right direction.
