Arequipa, nicknamed “La Ciudad Blanca”, is the colonial-era capital of Peru’s Arequipa Region. Framed by 3 volcanoes, it's filled with unique baroque buildings constructed from sillar, a white volcanic stone. Its historic centre spans an area of 332 hectares and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its historic heritage, natural scenery and cultural sites make the city a major tourist destination which lays out a advantageous launchpad for trekking, rafting and visiting the Colca Canyon. Arequipa will lure you in immediately with its distinct beauty and charm. But, if the stunning white, carved facades and snow-capped volcanic peaks don’t capture your heart from the start, Arequipa’s rich traditions, refreshing pace, and thrilling outdoor adventures likely will.
