Arequipa Peru

Looping back up into Peru, I arrived in the beautiful town of Arequipa. Surrounded by snowcapped mountains and with a delightful centre square, cathedral and being home to the 16th century Santa Catalina monastery, the place is picturesque to say the least.

It is a good town to base yourself if you wish to visit Colca Canyon – the world’s deepest canyon about 150km north of the town, and companies run regular tours ranging from multiple day hikes to a day trip.

The market here is delightful with a range of traditional foods being offered, such as ceviche, the vegetarian option of some layered potato thing (it was actually very tasty!) and also stuffed peppers which unfortunately had meet in them. The juice here is great to try too.

    1. Haha, it’s so true, they certainly are not! I should probably say that I have met a few people who very much enjoyed La Paz, but for me it was a definite no. I think it’s an integral part of the travelling experience that there are some places we don’t like so much for whatever reason – it means that we appreciate and enjoy the places we adore much more. Thank you so much for reading my blog, I really appreciate it! 🙂
