Details of Day Tours


After picking you up from the hotel located in the historic center of the city of Arequipa, we will begin our walking tour through the colonial district of San Lázaro, where the city of Arequipa was founded, and the oldest neighborhood in the city.

 

We will explore Mundo Alpaca, an excellent place to learn about the textile world, the process, and production of alpaca fiber, highly prized worldwide. You will be able to appreciate these beautiful animals, as well as llamas, living in a natural environment.

 

We will pass by San Francisco Square. We will have a panoramic view of the San Francisco Church, built in the 17th century and restored on different occasions due to earthquakes. On the way to the Plaza de Armas, we will see colonial mansions such as the Tristán del Pozo Mansion, with a beautiful baroque entrance from the 18th century.

 

Then, we will panoramically visit the Plaza de Armas and the Municipal Palace, admiring the spectacular architecture around. The Cathedral, the Church of La Compañía founded by the Jesuits in the 17th century, and the Church of San Francisco from the 16th century are jewels that stand out for their beautiful constructions.

 

We will visit the Andean Sanctuaries Museum, an archaeological museum with a very interesting collection of various artifacts belonging to the Inca culture with an approximate antiquity of 500 years, and exhibition of mummies from ancient Peru.

 

You will be able to appreciate the good state of preservation of the famous Lady of Ampato, as well as the mummification process used to keep her in good condition.

 

Also known as Juanita Mummy, she is a young Inca girl aged between 13 and 14, who was found frozen on the Ampato Volcano in 1995 and is currently kept protected inside an urn at a temperature of 19 degrees below zero. She was found with offerings around her such as gold and precious stone figurines, and other objects that are exhibited in the museum.

 

At the end of the guided tour, we will drop you back at the hotel or in the city center.
