After a night of celebrating back in Cuzco, we take a morning flight to Arequipa. Peru’s second most important city after Lima, Arequipa is more a traditional colonial style city and more laid back pace in comparison with the capital.

Arequipa has its nickname, “the White City.” as was built from a very light coloured volcanic rock. The main plaza is filled with cafés and nearby cathedral is a main feature to this quaint city, we also visit the Convent of Santa Catalina.
