Welcome to Piura

Being so far inland, the scorching summer months will have you honing your radar for air-conditioning, as you seek out chilled venues in which to soothe sweltering skin. It's not a hugely attractive city, a fact not helped by severe flooding in 2017 that damaged some urban areas, but remnants of narrow cobbled streets and some charismatic colonial houses make up for the fact that there’s little else for visitors to do here.

Its role as a hub for the northern towns means you’ll probably end up spending some time here.
