Huaraz Travel Guide

Etymology

The name of the city comes from the Quechua word "Waraq", that means "sunrise". Because the prehispanic people who lived in the zone, had as a god the "Waraq coyllur" that means "Star of sunrise" or Venus planet, because it is the star that can be seen better from the city at sunrise.
