Battlefield of Ayacucho

.

Battlefield of Ayacucho is part of the Tentative list of Peru in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Battlefield of Ayacucho is the site of the last great battle of the Spanish American wars of independence in which the independence forces of Peru, led by General Sucre, defeated the Spanish army. It is considered one of the most important battles fought in South America and represents the end of the colonial era and Spanish domination of the continent. Today, a memorial commemorates this battle and the site has been recognised by the main countries of South America as a highly significant historical site, illustrating the emancipation of their peoples and nations.
