Arequipa

The city of Arequipa stands in a beautiful valley at the foot of el Misty volcano. The city was founded on 15th August but it had previously been occupied by the Incas.
Because of volcanic sillar stone used in the building of the city of Arequipa have given it a nickname of “White city”.  The churches, mansions and the Plaza de Armas, all shine with it this stonework.  We highly recommend visiting the Santa Catalina convent that unlike other monuments, it’s painted in bright colors. This is just one attraction in a region of volcanoes, deep canyons and vast Valleys. We cannot forget the perfect cone of el misty, the most famous volcano in Peru which looks out the city day and night.
We couldn't leave Arequipa without visiting the valley of Colca,  known as the best place in the world to get a close up view majestic Condor  rising on their natural environment.

We can also say that famous writer and nobel prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa was born here in Arequipa as well as other famous people such as the former president Fernando Belaunde Terry.
