Arrival to Arequipa, reception at the airport and transfer to your hotel. Balance of the morning at leisure. Afternoon city tour of Arequipa and Santa Catalina Convent. Arequipa, also called the «White City» for its beautiful buildings made of pearly volcanic rock, was also an important colonial city. With its fine baroque art, beautiful colonial architecture and gilded churches, this city vividly illustrates Peru in the age of the Viceroys.
