Arequipa

Arequipa is home to beautiful colonial buildings, churches and the fascinating Santa Catalina Monastery that covers over 22km2 in the centre of the city.

There is also a thriving gastronomic scene here to rival the capital city. In Arequipa, the restaurants are called "picanterias" and the food is seriously delicious! The wood fires spread the delightful aromas of the regional food, so the temptation is difficult to resist.

Visitors can enjoy a series of delicacies, including the "solterito de queso" salad, pork "chicharrón" and "adobo dominical" (Sunday marinated meat). Stews and soups are also common, but you really can’t leave without trying the "rocoto", which is an iconic stuffed pepper dish. Just make sure you save some room for dessert!

The huge volcanos provide a remarkable backdrop to the town’s pretty, white-washed buildings. Whilst visiting Arequipa, you will be treated to picturesque panoramic scenes.

The city is also a gateway to the amazing Colca Canyon. This famous canyon is known for being one of the world’s deepest. It is also a great trekking destination, which boasts outstanding views. You may even spot a giant Andean condor if you keep your eyes peeled!
