Arequipa is the largest city in the southern half of Peru, and the second most popular destination for tourists (after Cuzco).
Our city is known as the White City because the buildings are made of ashlar, a volcanic rock. Its son is called Misti, the most impressive among the 3 volcanoes surrounding it.

It is the mandatory starting point to visit the Colca Canyon, finalist at 'New 7 Wonders of Nature' and best location in the world to observe the andean condor. It is located on the south coast region of Peru, just below the rim of the Andean plateau, at 2380 meters (or 7808 feet) above sea level.

It is part of the so called 'Southern Tourism Corridor in Peru', together with Nazca, Puno and Cuzco. Unlike these other cities, Arequipa is a mixture of Spanish and mestizo cultures developed in Peru.
