Arequipa is Only a city Involving Bolivia Chile, Machu Picchu, and Lima.
Tourism in Arequipa has grown in the last several decades. This is largely due its proximity to Colca Canyon, but as more and more travelers flock into the majestic city they can not help but see that it is much more than its geography.
La Plaza de Armas
Plaza de armas, or arequipa’s central plaza, was argued to be the most beautiful in all of South America. Oriented around one magnificent fountain and framed by colonial buildings that are conserved, it’s easy to see why. The plaza is the heart and soul of the city, although Each of downtown is the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This labyrinth of a monastery will take the vast majority of the day to explore to you. Santa Catalina Monastery was nicknamed”the city within a city.” This is because of the simple fact, and its expansive dimensions that by the external world that the convent remained completely shut off between its opening in 1579 and 1970. Highlights consist of conventional kitchens and living quarters, the picturesque silence yard, the most central cloister, along with an art gallery.
