Constructed in volcanic rock, the historical center of the city of Arequipa is a masterpiece of architecture and cultural heritage and should definitely not be missed on a trip to Peru. Built-in 1540 in a valley that had been previously been farmed by pre-Hispanic tribes, Arequipa and its historic center are an essential destination while visiting Peru. The historic center is comprised of the remarkable Plaza de Armas, complete with its awe-inspiring arches and, the chief neoclassical religious structure in the country, the magnificent cathedral. While on an Arequipa Peru tour, there are several excursions and activities to enjoy. Beyond exploring the city, take a 2-day excursion to the Colca Canyon. Additionally, visit the Juanita Inca Ice Mummy displayed in the Catholic University’s Museum of Andean Sanctuaries. Or drive through the countryside to the Sabandia Mill, and the Parque Industrial, a park with bridges, lagoons, and pools. Also worth exploring are the Toro Muerto petroglyphs, located outside of Arequipa. Your Arequipa tour will be one you won’t forget!
