Arequipa is also known as La Ciudad Blanca - the White City – due to its magnificent constructions made of white rock. It is the second-largest city in Peru. In contrast to other Peruvian cities, Arequipa embodies the colonial mestizo culture of Peru, which is a mixture of the authentic indigenous Peruvian heritage and influence from the Spanish colonization. UNESCO has declared Arequipa and its colonial architecture a Human Heritage site due to this culturally rich mixture of Spanish and Indigenous roots.
When in Arequipa, you should not miss out on visiting this beautiful Convent. Some people say that the Convent of Santa Catalina is not just a religious building but also a citadel within Arequipa. Other highlights are the Plaza de Armas, the San Francisco Square, the Campanía de Jesus Church, the beautiful colonial houses and the unforgettable Santa Catalina Monastery. read more
