Travel Tips for Arequipa

Arequipa, The White City

by besbel

Arequipa is known as “the white city” since many of their ancient buildings and street walls are made with ashlar (“sillar” in Spanish), a white volcanic rock that seemed to be more resistant than other materials of the time like adobe (a mix of sand and clay with water). The best examples of ashlar architecture can be found at the belvedere in Yanahuara. Looking beautiful Arequipa from the belvedere with my ex colleagues. It is a bittersweet memory, though, since this was my last trip for the research center I was working for.

This quiet suburb of Arequipa is well worth the minimal effort it takes to get here. You will see parts of town you'd otherwise miss, enjoy great views of Arequipa and El Misti from its Mirador, and the main square is beautiful with a 500 year-old church and huge palm trees. And besides, one of the best restaurants in the area is out this way too!

See nice Architecture...

(Open daily 9am - 5pm, last admission 4pm. Entrance fee $7.50 )
The Monasterio de Santa Catalina is the most astonishing site in Arequipa. It was opened to the public in 1970 after 400 years as a cloister. The convent has been beautifully refurbished with period furniture and paintings. Behind the closed doors the nuns, daughters of aristocrats, paid little heed to the vows of poverty and silence. Each had her own servant and dined with porcelain plates, fine tablecloths and silver cutlery.
The convent is a complete miniature walled colonial town in the middle of the city. There are flower filled gardens, spacious patios, granite fountains as well as arches and narrow streets. The tile-roofed buildings are painted in traditional white, brown and blue. About 20 nuns still live in a section of the convent, which once housed up to 500.


La Compañia

by elpariente

La iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús es uno de los mejores ejemplos del arte barroco andino o estilo mestizo
La portada frontal con sus relieves , los claustros , las tres naves con su altar tallado de cedro dorado ,la capilla de San Ignacio , la sacristía donde hay pinturas de plantas y animales tropicales con una gran bóveda hacen que la Compañía y todo su entorno sea uno de los lugares que hay que ver en Arequipa
The church of the Compañía de Jesús is one of the best examples of the Andean Barroque art or mestizo style
The main gate with its carving , the cloisters , the three bays with the gilded carved cedar altar , San Ignacio chapel , the sacristy where there are paintings of tropical animals and plants with a great vault make that the Compañía and all his environment is one of theplaces that you must visit in Arequipa

Dont miss Arequipa if you are in Peru!

We came to arequipa and by recommendation we stayed at Reyna´s Hostel on Zola 204, very nice.
It was located in the central Area of Arequipa close to the town centre.
What we found out is that in the centre the food can be both expensive and bad. The food could be better even if you just paid a fifth of the so called "tourist menu" offered around Plaza de Armas.
For 3 soles you´ll get a complete menu (around 1 US) . Just look where the locals eat , a few blocks from the centre. I guess this applies to most of the Peruvian cities.
The party life was better at Ave. Dolores located 5 min with taxi.
It was less touristic and cheaper than in the centre.
