AREQUIPA WHITE CITY 1 DAY
In the morning, we pick you up from your hotel (or other agreed location) to take you to the city center. The first stop shows you one of the last traditional neighborhoods: San Lázaro, typical for its old and narrow streets. All the houses are made of “ashlar” and are adorned with various flowers, mostly geraniums. After that, continue to the San Francisco complex consisting of the Church of San Francisco, the Monastery of San Francisco, and a smaller church of the Franciscan Third Order.
Third, visit the colonial mansion of Tristan del Pozo. It is made in the style called “mestizo baroque”.
The fourth stop shows you the highlights of the tour of the White City of Arequipa, the main square. Later you enter the Cathedral to also appreciate its interior. Later, you head to the opposite corner of the square to see the cloister and La Compañía church. It is another magnificent example of “mestizo baroque” art that houses several paintings from the so-called “Escuela Cusqueña” and “Escuela Arequipeña”.
So, you deserve a break so that your Tourist Guide will take you to a restaurant that offers typical Arequipa cuisine. Later, the tour continues to the San Camilo Market, apparently built as a church. The roof of the current market was designed by the famous French architect Gustavo Eiffel and the entire building is considered historical heritage.
Finally, you go to the Santa Catalina Convent which is basically a city within a city. You can feel the air of the colonial era in its various cloisters and cells.
