Avanti Destinations: Arequipa and Colca CanyonDay 1 Arequipa Arrival greeting and transfer to your selected hotel. Enjoy an afternoon city tour. Known as the white city, the primary building material used in Arequipa is a smooth white volcanic stone. One of the city's major attractions is the 16th century Monastery of Santa Catalina, which for more than 400 years housed an order of cloistered nuns. This convent, closed to the public for almost 400 years until 1970, is still home to a few cloistered nuns. The tour also includes a visit to the Plaza de Armas, the main square, where you will see the Cathedral with its marble altar, a huge organ from Belgium, and the magnificent pulpit carved in Lille, France. Continue on to the Jesuit church of La Compania with its beautifully painted chapel and carved volcanic stone arcades. Return to your hotel for overnight.
