Nice for a walk along the river and to take a look at homes. Getting out of the historic center provides another layer of understanding regarding the city.

Beautiful place to enjoy the views and although several tour groups come here on buses, we managed to go there on our own and take our time. I would recommend to go for sunset as the colors over Misti are really beautiful.

Lots of youngsters here taking selfies/ group pictures but we didn't really "get it", the view beyond was OK, but not great.

The mirador at this this ancient site gives you, probably, the best indication of the dominance of the Misti volcano over Arequipa. A great photo-opportunity in this old part of the city; but there is little else there.

Yanahuara us one if the traditional neighborhoods from Arequipa & has a wonderful view of the Misti volcano, the arches are surrounded by bougainvilleas a flower that combines so well with the white volcanic sillar. The church is also so beautiful and worth visiting.

Beautiful view of the city with the volcanos in the background. Must see when visiting Arequipa. About a 20 minute walk from the Plaza de Armas with a slight incline.
