AREQUIPA GUIDED CITY TOUR $85 USD Per Person

The White City Of Peru - World Heritage Site - UNESCO

Arequipa is a city in southern Peru and the nation's second most-important city. The city stands at the foot of the Misti volcano in the highlands. Arequipa has many fine colonial/Spanish buildings built of sillar, a pearly white volcanic rock used extensively in the construction of the city, from which it gets its nickname La Ciudad Blanca ("the white city").
It is often said that the city's name comes from the Quechua phrase "Ari, quepay" which means "Yes, stay". Nowadays one assumes that the name is from Aymara "ari" (peak) + "kipa" (locative) and means something like "near the mountain". Arequipa is situated has been occupied back to 5000 - 6000 BCE. In the15th century, the region, then occupied by Aymara Indians, was conquered by the Inca and served as an important supplier of agrarian products to the Inca empire. The modern city of Arequipa was founded on august 15th by Garci Manuel de Carbajal, an emissary of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro. As the second largest city in Peru, Arequipa is influenced by both Andalusian and Spanish Colonial ideas and architecture, such as the popular Santa Catalina Monastery, the Goyoneche palace and the Casa de Moral. Arequipa has many valuable archaeological and touristy resources including the Colca canyon, one of the deepest canyon in the world and an ideal spot for observing the magnificent Andean Condor.
