This courtyard is an incredible place to relax and see some of the best Spanish Colonial architecture in Arequipa. Detailed stone work abounds. And the shopping is some of the best in the city. Find this place off the Plaza de Armas, get some ice cream at Antika, and walk through their side door to quiet, serenity, and peace.

It's good to get away from the busy streets and take time to walk, sit, read or contemplate in this quiet monastery. Really nice boutiques. The visit of the chapel is a must.

The visit here was also well curated and explained. The main purpose was to see the mummified remains of the sacrificed "Juanita" and the association with Volcanoes. Very worthwhile

We stopped in at this church after catching a glimpse of the beautiful facade while strolling along the edge of the plaza de armas. The baroque facade is strikingly beautiful. The interior is lovely as well, but decorated like many other colonial churches in Peru. We didn't visit the part of the church that you have to pay to enter,... More

This church is a nice baroque church that it decorated beautifully on the inside. The most amazing part was the sanctuary with an amazingly detailed painted ceiling - don't miss it even though there's a small fee. Wow. That is worth the visit!

We decided to attend Easter Sunday mass. It is a huge church and was full be the the time mass started. Many people and singing, very touching and heartwarming. The bishop did his rounds blessing children and adults. We were glad to have the experience.

An impressive church and situated conveniently close to a corner of the main square - Plaza de Armas - too good to miss while just strolling around.
