Volcanoes and Architecture in Arequipa, Peru – UNESCO World Heritage Site

The historic center of Arequipa, Peru is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Its history, scenery and cultural sites make it a popular destination and with good reason.  The scenery is spectacular with the snow-covered volcanoes and the Andes mountains surrounding the city.  With an mix of interesting architectural styles and an easily walkable historic district, it’s a fascinating city to explore.

Arguably the main square of Arequipa, the Plaza de Armas, surrounded by buildings made of a white volcanic stone is likely to be the main tourist attraction.  A short distance away, I also recommend visiting the Santa Catalina Monastery if you have time.

  2. Likewise, I usually follow anyone that follows me, but I confess I have unfollowed a couple that are doing just that.
