Went with a few friends, I feel like this place was a bit over rated. Maybe you will find it better if you are really into religious stuff but for me it felt like it was a lot of the same things, a lot of small rooms, kitchens and paintings. Not very entertaining I think. The surroundings was kind of nice, but the price of approximately 15 USD per person was a bit to expensive for this experience. Maybe more fun with a guide but that will cost you even more. / Martin 29

Take your time, their iOS guided audio tour was great. Take 3plus hours and go early. Lots of shade and cool from heat. So much color and beauty within these walls!

Visited as part of a walking tour of the city with a knowledgable guide. Am sure got more from the visit, by having a guid with us. Allow enough time to visit - we were there 90 mins and could have stayed much longer. Very interesting

nice place in the middle of the town . from the outside not that big but inside you easily can walk 1-2 hours to visit each room. A lot of the rooms are similar but still it all gives a good impression how they have lived in this place . you can take a guide but also nice to walk yourself . entrance about 45 sol pp and a guide is additional 10 sol pp.

This was an extremely interesting visit! I learned so much about this monument and it was also beautiful.
I would advise anyone who’s in Arequipa to take a walk around the Monastario de Santa Catalina

Absolutely beautiful. I wish I'd spent more time wandering around but I needed to get to my next activity. The colors and the architecture and the plants... everything is just Absolutely beautiful.Taking a guide is most recommended as they will explain the history and what the various sections of the property was used for.
A good half day visit.

One of the top things to do in Arequipa. The monastery is very well conserved and, actually, a part is still active for a community of cloistered nuns. It's worth taking a guide. They're very friendly, and they tell you all the important facts about the monastery. From there, the views of the nearby volcanoes are also great.
