    Arequipa, or "The White City", capital of the department, for dominance in the buildings of ashlar stone, offers our fellow travelers large samples of its varied architecture, such as churches, convents, monasteries and the famous Convent of Santa Catalina dating back to 1580, as well as lots of mansions.

    The surrounding countryside is very beautiful, like the nearby towns Cayma, Carmen Alto, Yanahuara and Characato where there is an observatory. It has as background the imposing and beautiful volcanic cone of the Misti.

    In addition, you can find beautiful resorts like Mejia, Mollendo and Camana and medicinal thermal baths as Yura, Socosani and Jesus.

    The Colca Canyon, located in the Province of Caylloma is the most appropriate area for the practice of adventure tourism (rafting, kayaking, trekking) also to appreciate condors and deep canyon.

    Aguada Blanca Reserve is one of the main reserves for reproduction of the vicuna, slender American camelid which has the finest hair for high-quality fabrics.
