Arequipa & Colca Canyon


Arequipa is known for having one of the most beautiful settings and pleasant climates in Perú. Also known as the "White City", is located in southern Peru at an elevation of approximately 7,500 feet, at the foot of an ice-capped volcano El Misti.

When Pizarro “officially” founded the city in 1540, he was inspired to call it Villa Hermosa or Beautiful Town because it was blessed with some of the finest colonial architecture in the country, with numerous churches and mansions, many of which are constructed from the white volcanic sillar that is cut from nearby mountains. In addition to the colonial architecture in this timeless city, the Arequipa region features a spectacular countryside including Colca Canyon, one of the deepest in the world. 

The climate of the city is predominantly dry in winter, autumn and spring due to atmospheric moisture, is also due to semiarid effective precipitation and tempered by the thermal condition.
