You'll keep on coming back to this square during your stay in Arequipa as it is the central hub of this sprawling city. The square is busy day and night with locals meeting friends and family. There is also the constant whistle blowing from the traffic police. The scenery changes from day to night when the lovely snow capped mountains that provide a stunning backdrop to the Cathedral during the daytime giving way to the beautifully lit cathedral in the evening. Very picturesque.
There's also a little supermarket on the side opposite the cathedral, great for your bottles of water and snacks.
