Arequipa is a delightful Colonial City, situated at the foot of El Misti Volcano, a snow-capped perfect cone of 5,822 metres. Known as the White City, Arequipa is teemed with fine Spanish buildings and wonderful natural landscape. At the heart of the City, tourists may visit the magnificent Santa Catalina Monastery, the most remarkable sight in Arequipa, with numerous passageways and intricate architecture. At the Museum of Santuarios Andinos you may meet Juanita The Ice Girl, a well preserve mummy, found high into the Andean glaciers. Its Plaza de Armas is one of the most beautiful of Peru, beautifully laid-out with palm trees and gardens, surrounded by arcaded buildings in colonial style, including the gorgeous Cathedral.
