It takes this name due to its walls with white volcanic stones. Arequipa is surrounded by the volcanos Chachanni, Misti and Pichu Pichu - some of the 80 existent in the area. In the center of the city there is the most beautiful PLAZA DE ARMAS I have ever seen in Peru, a big cathedral and volcanos framed in snow.
I enjoyed MOSTEIRO SANTA CATALINA - it is modest, full of history, works of art and background music to put us in the mood.
