Main Square or Plaza de Armas

Here you will find three importants things: the cathedral, constructed with sillar (a typical volcanic stone from this department), the archways and the central fountain.
Monastery of Santa Catalina
In the main center of the city it is also located the Monastery of Santa Catalina, a place of impressive architecture and history. Do you want to know all the details about this place? Check our blog post about it.
Approximately two kilometers away from the center of Arequipa is located Yanahuara, a neighborhood of narrow stone streets and sillar houses. Here, hundreds of tourists arrive each day to visit its main attraction: the viewpoint.
Through the arches of the viewpoint, also made of sillar and decorated with phrases of illustrious people of the city, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the three volcanoes of Arequipa: the Misti, the Chachani and the Pichu Pichu.
The Colca Canyon is perhaps the biggest attraction for tourists who come to Arequipa. It is one of the deepest canyons in the world and here inhabits the Andean condor.
To get to this place there are day trips but also longer tours in which you can descend to the lowest part of the canyon to spend the night there.
If you have time, we recommend you to venture to spend more than one day in this fabulous place.
And, of course, when you visit the White City, you can not miss the best restaurants. Arequipa is known for its excellent cuisine, and in places like the picanterías you will find the typical dishes of this department.
