Peru's most charming city

Arequipa is Peru’s second largest city and considered by many as its most charming. Renowned as a cultural and culinary capital, Arequipa is blessed with world class museums, a dazzling white Plaza de Almas and a colourful monastery and is surrounded by the snowcapped Andean peaks, making it a visual delight. Once, considered a jumping off point to visit the nearby Colca Canyon, Arequipa is now firmly on the map as a must-see destination on its own.
