I think this article needs to be copyedited. WP:NPOV?? maybe move parts to wikitravel? --ErickAgain (talk) 23:54, 8 January 2008 (UTC).

I moved some paragraphs to the Huaraz article and removed some others which read like a tourist guide and thus, unsuitable for Wikipedia per WP:NOT#TRAVEL. --Victor12 (talk) 15:47, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Hi, I am the person who added the information in the Huaraz Province article. If you take a look at it, you'll see it's not refering to the city itself, but to the city and the sorroundings (near towns). All of them, of course, composed the Huaraz Province. Please do not erase any information about it. Thanks. --Evelyn Zuñiga 23:28, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
I think you are completely wrong. All the Departments or Regions of Peru have a province that is the mos important of it, that's why it's called the capital of the Region. I think you'll have a better idea of it if you actually live there. Furthermore, there's no need of using CAPITAL LETTERS to give your point of view, nobody is fighting or anything and it's considered very rude to use them. Thanks. --Evelyn Zuñiga 16:27, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I don't see how can you claim that the following paragraphs do not refer to the city itself
On May 31, 1970 the Ancash earthquake destroyed much of Huaraz, killing 10,000 people. Almost nothing was left of the old city with its narrow streets and big adobe casonas roofed with tiles. The main square was the only major structure that survived the earthquake so the city was rebuilt around it. The old and big casonas were replaced with smaller houses while the old narrow streets were widened as they had proved to be deathtraps during the earthquake.
The new Huaraz, <<The Mountaineer Capital of Peru>>, has the activity of a modern city. In the streets sourrounding the farmers' market, the <<paraditas>> [1] of ancash craft sellers appear: woolen textiles of alpaca, carpets, colouring sweaters that tourists snatch from each other, etc. They also sell <<cuarteados>>[2] from Caraz, the boxes of manjarblanco, butter, cheese, honey, big legs of smoked and salty ham that are typical from the zone, etc.
I copyedited and moved them to the Huaraz article. Why have you readded them here? Also Wikipedia is not a travel guide, so it is not really appropriate to write things like It is important to visit the Regional Museum of Archaeology or From this place, it is possible to observe the immense chain of snow-capped mountains of the Cordillera Blanca and the panoramic sight of the Callejón de Huaylas --Victor12 (talk) 17:46, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry but I don't see the second parragraph anywhere in the Huaraz city article. And you are right, those two paragraphs belongs to the city, but instead of erasing them all, just moved them as you said you would do. Now, regarding to the part you said it's touritic information, I don't see it like that, still you can make some re-arrangements to the parragraph instead of deleting (once more) information I think it's important for people to now. I just did some changes to it. Let me know what you think. Thanks. --Evelyn Zuñiga 18:19, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Somewhat better, still claims like "the biggest lithic museum in South America" need to be sourced, otherwise they'll be removed. Also, is this museum in the city of Huaraz or elsewhere in the province? --Victor12 (talk) 19:31, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
