Things to see in Tacna

Situated near Chile border, the city of Tacna is the capital of Peruvian region of the same name. Convenient location, rich history of independence fights, and outstandingly delicious cuisine make Tacna one of the most eagerly visited tourist spots in the southern part of the country. What should you see here?

The city previously referred to as San Pedro de Tacna (today simply Tacna) is well known throughout Peru for the struggle for independence that took place here. Numerous monuments to the heroes of the 19th-century events, like the impressive one at Alto de la Alianza, were erected to commemorate the citizens’ patriotic stance. Also, ever since 1901 Paseo de la Bandera festival is held on August 28th to celebrate the Flag Day. Although history is very important for the residents of the city, or tacneños, it currently focuses on development, tourism, and duty-free trade.

Tacna is not a big city, but it houses several architectural gems. One of them is a neo-renaissance cathedral in the center that is particularly interesting due to its onyx altar and the fact that it was designed by Gustave Eiffel. Plaza de Armas, the main square, is also well worth visiting. It attracts with lush greenery, palms, and blooming pergolas but also with a huge arch of concrete built in honor of the Pacific War heroes (Arco Parabólico, also known as Arco de los Héroes). If you need to escape the scorching heat, head for a six-meters-tall bronze fountain also created by the French engineer.

The south Peruvian cuisine is based on local fresh products and recipes passed down from generation to generation. The city’s most famous traditional dish is picante a la tacneña – beef, lamb, and llama meat stew with chili peppers and potatoes. Several hours or even days(!) are needed to cook it properly. You should also try marinated pork and drinks on traditional pisco, brandy-like alcohol based on fermented grapes. Where to eat? Get a taste of local delicacies and live music in Sabor Latino, La Huerta or in La Limón.
