Amazing Views

The plaza of Yanahuara is very beautiful. A wonderful place to stop and enjoy the views over the valley and city. Classic and timeless.

It's an easy walk but not much to see at the top... just the tops of buildings but it's a decent little square to hang out

We walked to Yanahuara and it is beautiful view of volcano Misti, the mountains and the magnificent city of Arequipa. The church nearby with its detailed architecture was just a brilliant sight.

If you visit Yanahuara, you will have one of the best views of the Volcano Misti, also there is a nice park in the square

Well worth the walk to get out of the city centre and see a bit more of the city. The view is spectacular.

We went as part of the Arequipa Free Walking Tour. The suburb is nice with some lovely houses, a nice square and great views of the nearby volcanoes. But the views you can get elsewhere and at the end of the day a few nice and expensive houses and a nice park are not that special or unique.

Yanuhuara is a place given a Quechua name meaning Black Underwear. No kidding. The rustic setting provides a view of a lengthy elevated aquaduct. Phptos might be taken under one of the aquaduct's arches withe the volcanoes El Misti and Cha Chani in the background.

The Yanahuara area is located across the Grau bridge from the City Centre. It has a nice market square and some pittoresque sloping streets around it. But not on the top of my visit wish list in Arequipa.

Good photo spot with the arches framing Misti Volcano. Evening or late afternoon is the best time for the perfect lighting.
