Arequipa, known as the white city due to having been built with beautiful white volcano stones, welcomes you with its warm climate, its imposing Misti volcano, its friendly people and its varied and delicious gastronomy.
Arequipa has a great variety of landscapes, from coastal desert to the high altitudes of snow-capped mountains of the Andes and volcanoes. The city is located in the skirts of the impressive Volcanoes Chachani and Misti and the snow-capped Pichu Pichu.
Here you will also find the unique destination of the Valley of the Colca Canyon, the deepest canyon in the world, which is only a few hours away from the city. At the cross of the Condor you will be able to see the majestic flight of the condor, the biggest flying animal in the world. Other places of interest in this department are the Toro Muerto Petroglyphs, the valley of the volcanoes of Andagua and the Cotahuasi canyon. You can also practice sports such as mountain biking, trekking and canoeing in this valley.
Announced as UNESCO world heritage, Arequipa’s city center has a great historical heritage to offer you, where you will find temples and old colonial buildings in a baroque style, as well as the convent of Santa Catalina, a Spanish miniature city with narrow stone streets, beautiful patios and market places.
