#1 of 27 Museums in Arequipa Region
In the hustle and bustle of the busy city of Arequipa, this lovely piece of tranquility is a beautiful place to visit with its interesting history and quaint passageways and courtyards, its well worth a visit.
This was a very pleasant surprise - a fascinating guided tour and then time to wander and take some super shots of the rich colours - plant and bird life - and then savour refreshments in the lovely garden cafe.

The guides were really friendly and knowledgeable, the views of the planets, stars and moon amazing from the 3 different very powerful telescopes.
It’s about a 15 minute hike up from the Plaza but it’s well worth it.

It includes a museum of treasures from previous eras -- gold crowns, lavish headpieces and robes encrusted with jewells, all used in Catholic celebrations and rituals.
I recommend the tour though, for S10 plus a tip to your guide you get to go to more areas including the museum and the roof, and get a great guided tour of the cathedral.

If buying genuine antiques anywhere in Peru, check Peruvian laws first for what can and cannot be removed and make sure that you always have an invoice from the shop or for the older items, a government certificate.
There were several other things I would have loved to shop Home.
