Beautiful and very touristic! Plaza de Armas is the most important touristic place of the city Arequipa! Tourists can enjoy tasty food of order a tour inside the antient building.

“Very busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Lots going on, lots of people, lots of shops and restaurants. We had guided tour so we learnt a lot of the history. Can't say there was anything to dislike about it,

“More sellers then buyers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

It was raining when we were there and there appeared to be more sellers of nic backs then buyers. It was easy to be a target. The continual targeting by people selling the same thing can wear thin.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Arequipa was my second favourite city in Peru. Really nice architecture, the plaza de armas is amazing, especially at night. There are some restaurants, where you can sit on the rooftop and enjoy the great views down to the plaza but also all ober Arequipa and the volcanoes.
