Arequipa

The White City

Intro

The White City of Arequipa not only has beautiful convents, temples and grand old colonial houses, it also holds a wealth of gastronomy as a result of a mixture of native products of the ancient Pre-Columbian cultures combined with modern culinary techniques. Additionally, two of the deepest canyons in the world; the Colca and the Cotahuasi, are the natural habitat of the Vicuña, with the finest fibre in the world, and the condor that shows its majesty when flying a few meters just above guests.
