A very nice place to visit. You can see Arequipa's volcanos from here and take awesome pics. Went with my fiance and definitely enjoyed it :)

What a beautiful place to take pics at sunset. You can catch the colours in the sky between the arches perfectly. Always weddings here to watch in the street too if you are the romantic type

We found the view here very disappointing. I wouldn't say you have any greater view of el Misti from this point. Rather, I would recommend going to the Katharine arms hotel roof terrace for a drink and enjoy the view from there.

This lookout was a little less miraculous as we expected it would be but was a way to kill an hour or so while visiting Arequipa. It took about 25 minutes to walk from the Plaza de Armas, and after being there for 5 minutes, we felt as if we'd seen all there was to see there. If you do... More

A lovely pretty centre of this town. The views over the valley are very good too. Only spent a short time here. Church is also very beautiful.
