“Lovely area, close to historic central Arequipa.”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Lovely location, no more than 15 min by taxi from Arequipa downtown. From here, you will be able to take amazing photos of the country side of Arequipa and the Misti volcano.

“Eat the queso helado!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Lovely little square which we visited as part of the yellow bus trip. A lady there sells 'Queso helado' (looks like a block of cheese), a type of fresh ice cream unique to Arequipa made with fresh milk, cinnamon, cloves and coconut.

Reviewed June 3, 2012

Expected much more after reading the reviews. Neighborhood is much more interesting then the Plaza itself.

“Mirador, restaruants, square, shops and stalls”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

With all of the above the Mirador is worth a visit, stop for lunch in one of the restaurants, visit the church, enjoy the view and perhaps buy some local handicrafts. Well worth an afternoon visit.

“Got to see!”
Reviewed April 30, 2012 via mobile

We were unfortunate to get there on a smoggy day, so we did not see the whole beauty of it's panoramic view
But street walking in area right across the square made up for it:)
Very beautiful, lots places to take picktures by, definitely worth the trip!
