“Lots of walking”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

After you eat you will enjoy walking in the square. There are lots of shops and sites to see. Many opportunities to find treasures to bring home.

“Beautiful spot”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

The architecture, open space, atmosphere and beauty of this area is fantastic both day and night. The area is always bustling with people and is very safe and secure. There's good cafés, restaurants and food stalls everywhere. The markets are worth a look as are all the churches in the area.

“Plaza de Armas”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We stayed in the Centre of Arequipa at the hotel Sonesta. I can't tell you how wonderful it was having breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Plaza de Armas and the Basilica Cathedral. The weather always seemed perfect and there was always some kind of activity. We stayed here for 3 months. It was only a short walk to many historic buildings including the Santa Catalina Monastery which is a definite must see. Can't wait to go back. :)

“Beautiful, wish we had more time to explore”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

It's a beautiful city, but because of an error by our tour company, we weren't able to see as much of the city as we would have liked. Architecture is beautiful and the history is interesting.
