We were told by our tour guide that Arequipa has the best Main Square in Peru. After having visited the one in Cusco, we wondered how true that was. But as soon as we got out of our cab, all of us were taken aback by the beauty of the magnificent cathedral right in front of us! That structure alone defines the whole square. We wish we had the opportunity to visit it during the day, but unfortunately we had an early morning flight the next day.
The streets surrounding the square have several beautiful buildings. Some of them have amazingly intricate carvings on them. Definitely worth exploring on foot.
