when in Arequipa this is a must. The view from Yanahuara is stunning. The streets are cobblestone and still look like the old times. There are vendors in a small plaza and there are also lots of frozen cheese vendors. This is their type of ice cream. This is the ideal place for a nice afternoon walk.It seems safe and... More

I didn't like the theft who was watching my camera and tripod but i loved the scenery with mountains from that pedestrian street. It's quite touristic. And of course i liked the assistant of the police officer.

The walk from the historic center and up to Yanahuara is not that long and the view is really nice. You get some good shots with the volcanos and a greater understanding of how big the city of Arequipa is. Would recommend others to visit - there is a nice plaza there as well.

this mirador offers you an amazing view over the volcano and for sure it's a great place to take the best pictures of it

We came here to enjoy the views and it is well worth the hike from downtown Arequipa. There is also a lovely church in the mirador you should check out.

Not far from downtow, this Mirador allows you to see the valley, the river, and the new bridge (Chilinas) opened only a few months ago and said to be the longest in Peru. Unfortunately the church by the Mirador was closed.

Not recommend this hotel, they steal and take belonging from your suitcases. Bad experience. They pretend to be nice and smile at you thinking that every thing is OK. But surprise when you arrive to your home town you find out that a lot of the stuff you bought were missing. Don't stay in this hotel just because it looks... More

We stayed in a rental apartment in this lovely historic neighbourhood and settled into the friendly, relaxed lifestyle. The tiny plant lined alleys, the plaza with mirador, church, cafes and restaurants, make it a very attractive district. Its out of the bustle and smoke of the old centre, but near enough to walk. It also has the best Picanterias in... More

This is where you can see the Misti volcanoe in its plenitude. Also you can see the city of Arequipa.
