Arequipa - trip peru

The name comes from the Quechua “Ari-que-pay” which means “Yes, stay”. Arequipa is located on the point where the Andean central area and the central Andean south are divided. It was founded on August 15th, 1540 by Manuel Garcia de Carbajal.

Arequipa or the “White City”, called this due to the predominance of constructions of sillar stone, petrified volcanic lava material between white and pearl that when hit by the sun shines with a magnificent aura. Reason why the city shows a beautiful architecture based of sillar, landscapes and envy worthy vineyards.
