Just opposite the cathedral, the arch offers a view of the main square. If has 2 large busts of Peruvian war heroes. It is widely visited by locals and Peruvians as it commemorates the sacrifice of those killed during the Pacific War.

This arch in itself isn't a destination, it is part of the Paseo Civico in Tacna which is a very nice central esplanade with landscaping, free wifi and an imposing Cathedral.

This iconic Arco is a classic tourist visit in Tacna. It has also 2 of the most important heroes in Peruvian history. The plaza in general is nice although during the night, it should have more lights.

The bases of the arch have statues of two Peruvian military leaders who distinguished themselves in historic military battles. Inexpensive hotels (2-3 stars) are a close walk to this arch.
