AREQUIPA
“Arequipa, The white city”

Arequipa located at 2,230 a.s.l., is the second largest city of Perú after Lima; The Capital, it has 620,000 inhabitants.
Name Arequipa comes from the Quechua word "Ariquepay" which means "Yes, stay". It's not just by chance however that its name has held true throughout time; in the city streets, in its 'sillar' walls and in the attitude of it's people you feel a peculiar energy, a strange impulse, inviting you to stay on in the city
The ancient churches and convents, the old mansions are built out of 'sillar', a white volcano stone building material which, when the sun's light hits it, produces a glimmer, a extraordinary glow, therefore causing people to affectionately call "La Ciudad Blanca de Arequipa" or "Arequipa, The White City"
The city keeps its ancient architectural from the colonial time, but also shows a modern side with many luxurious hotels. Arequipa gives tourists the opportunity to spend a pleasant time in the city and its outskirts.
Suggestion to visit in the city: the main square or Plaza de Armas, “La Compañia de Jesus” church which has cloisters with ashlar, and the Santa Catalina Convent should not be missed

 

HOW TO GET THERE A daily commercial flights from Lima (1 hours), from Cusco (30 minutes) and from Juliaca-Puno (20 minutes) brings you to Arequipa.
