I mean it was average for Peru. I enjoyed myself and recommend checking it out. It was large and in a rectangular shape: average.

walking around, having a drink or sandwich in one of the restaurants facing the plaza de armas makes it perfect, or just seat by the stairs from the Catherdal and enjoy the view.

Full of people, the heart of the city. A lot of good restaurants and places to see. The best is to get a Queso Helado, seat next to the fountain and enjoy the view of the Catedral!

This is a great place to discover arequipa from. There's always something happening: demonstrations, impromptu bands. Fantastic for people watching in the sun. It feels very safe. The only annoyance is the pigeons and people feeding them. Anyway, never got tired of the views.

We arrived on the citiy's fiesta day. The plaza was full of people, music, dancing, noise, colour and more. It stayed like that all day and most of the night. We thought it would calm down and whilst calmer it is a very well used square. Apart from the fiesta we have in two Amy's seen political protests, Mexican dancers, school children in hoardes, a wedding, police, cars... The list just goes on and on. Must e a marvellous place to live!
