Beautiful place, the colonial style of this Monasterio is very beautiful! I liked the combination of red and blue walls, a lot of plants!

Fantastic step into monastic history and life - our guide was amazing. She didn't overload you with information but was very knowledgeable. The place is beautiful and very interesting. Our highlight (as well as Zig Zag restaurant) of Arequipa
