Arequipa
Travelogue for Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos

LimaLima (Len Meyers)
The Plaza De Armis and surrounding buildings was fascinating and of course a tour of the Santa Catalina Cathedral with the amazing organ and view from the top was spectacular. The tour of the country side to Yanahuara and the view of the 3 snowcapped volcanoes (Chachani, Misty and Pichu Pichu) was an awesome site.

The highlights for me was the Ice Maiden Inca mummy history and Inca culture at that time, exhibited in the Santuarios Andinos museum. Also the Monastery of Santa Catalina and its fascinating rooms, colors and architecture with absorbing stories of the nuns lives in the early days.
