Barrio Santa Ana - Other Activity Ayacucho - Peru

Barrio Santa Ana—a brief walk from Ayacucho's Plaza Mayor, following Avenida Grau—is a funky artisan community known for its local arts and crafts. The center of the neighborhood is Plazuela de Santa Ana, which houses the Iglesia Santa Ana de los Indios and is lined with family-run weaving workshops where high-quality tapestries, textiles, rugs and embroidered items are for sale. At some of the galleries, you can watch the products being made and converse with the artisans, many who have exhibited their works in the United States and Europe (and sell them there for double or triple the cost).

Some of the best places to purchase handicrafts include Galería Latina (Plazuela de Santa Ana 105. Tel: 311-215 , E-mail: huari39@hotmail.com), which is owned by the Gallardo family, who has been weaving for several generations; and Wari Art Gallery (Jr Mariscal Cáceres 302. Tel: 312-529), run by Gregorio Sulca, who is very knowledgeable about Quechua culture.
