Highlights of a Free Tour in Arequipa

Arequipa is a wonderful city steeped in history whose stunning baroque buildings are constructed from white volcanic stone. This peculiar architecture earned Arequipa the moniker of “White City”, as well as the reputation of being one of the most beautiful cities in South America. Join Free Tours in Arequipa and walk with a local knowledgeable guide around the historic center. You will explore Plaza de Armas, the square at the heart of the city. Here you will feel astonished by the sight of the massive Neoclassical Cathedral against the imposing background of the volcano Misti. Other important sights worth visiting are the Monastery of Santa Catalina de Siena, the Mario Vargas Llosa House-Museum (in honor of the Peruvian Nobel Prize winner), and colonial mansions such as Casa Goyeneche and Casona Tristan del Pozo. Yanahuara is a scenic overlook where you can admire the entire city and its wonderful volcanoes.

Things to Do in Arequipa

After attending an Arequipa Free Walking Tour and enjoying the views from Yanahuara Overlook in San Lazaro neighborhood, there are still many things to do in Arequipa. Go to Plaza de Armas and join the families, couples and students drinking hot chocolate while chilling out under the trees. Then, you can pay a visit to the quirky Mundo Alpaca. This shop, which doubles as an alpaca farm, is a place where visitors can learn everything about alpaca wool, and even take some pictures with the animals themselves! Of course, no visit to Arequipa would be complete without tasting traditional dishes such as ‘ocopa’ or ‘adobo arequipeno’. And don’t forget that Arequipa is second to none in nightlife and cocktail bars (pisco sour is a must while in Peru!). The next day, hire a private guide to explore Colca, the second deepest canyon in the world. It’s just 3 hours away from Arequipa and offers outstanding hiking opportunities.
