What To Expect
Explore the origins of Spanish colonialism in the city of San Lazaro by walking its narrow alleys and marveling at the pristine architecture of the churches and edifices.
Visit the charming village of Yanahuara which is home to the Carmen Alto viewpoint that boasts of the most glorious view of Peru's three volcanoes, Misti, Chachani and Pichu-Picchu.
Enter the Main Square and explore the imposing Arequipa Cathedral which stretches along the entire northern part of the Plaza de Armas. Built in 1656 and surviving fires and earthquakes, the Cathedral still stands proud today, and is home to the largest organ in South America, a gift from Belgium.
Enter the Church of the Company of Jesus and receive an insightful lecture about how the Incas merged the Catholic dogmas with their own religion based on nature. This monumental shift in the nation's culture is reflected in the sculptures and paintings decorating the church. The site is an outstanding example of colonial art and architecture.
Finally enter the Santuarios Andinos museum to visit the Incan Ice Maiden, a naturally preserved body of a human sacrifice that was frozen in the Ampato mountain range only 5 hours after her death, making her the most well-preserved mummy known to mankind. Unlike Egyptian mummies whose remains are preserved in separate jars, this mummy named Juanita still has all her body parts intact, making her a marvel of science and archaeology!
