Located on the slopes of a volcano, Arequipa is known as the White City, where its streets are an example of colonial art and are home to great attractions.
Arequipa is the second most populated city in Peru, it was founded on August 15, 1540 under the name of "Villa Hermosa de Nuestra Señora de la Asunta" in the name of the Marquis Francisco Pizarro, it has a great cultural and natural diversity of deep canyons, wonderful beaches, snow-capped mountains and imposing buildings made of white ashlar, thus keeping intact its historical, religious and ancestral legacy.
Santa Catalina de Siena is the saint who inspired this monastery, where silence found its voice in the vivid colors of its walls and in the cobbled passageways that converge on the beautiful main square.
Citadel of women dedicated to prayer, charity and the preparation of the most delicious desserts that the palate can imagine; Santa Catalina is, more than a monastery, a melting pot of secrets that the visitor can barely glimpse through its enclosures, but whose truth will remain within its walls forever.
And the ashlar became art. The Yanahuara viewpoint offers a privileged view of Arequipa from its white arches that join the Misti, Pichu Pichu and Chachani, the emblematic volcanoes of Arequipa, in a single embrace.
From its imposing height, more than 2300 meters above sea level, the entire city is also dominated, with its puzzle of cobbled alleys and colonial buildings.
