Arequipa

 

Arequipa has been called "the White City" due to its many buildings made of white sillar stone. This is a popular tourist destination due to its many temples, convents, monasteries and the famous Santa Catalina Convent, which dates back to 1580. Arequipa has become the economic centre for the south of Peru.

The city of Arequipa is surrounded by the central Andean and Andean south mountains. It is this setting that provides the city's impressive backdrop of the Misti Mountain volcanic cone. The countryside surrounding the white city is full of beautiful landscapes, and includes one of the deepest canyons of the world, the Colca Canyon. You can experience wonderful treks in this area once you have acclimatised, and also go rafting or kayaking. In addition there are a number of beach resorts in the nearby coastal area thermal baths.
