We came here for sunset and the view we got on the orange coloured Misti was simply amazing. I would definitely recommend you to come here. Even if you are not there for the sunset, I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy the view! We went there...More

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.

Yanahuara is a nice part of town of Arequipa. You have a wonderful view over the city and its volcanos. At this time there is a competition in crafting. White local volcanic stone carving, wood, leather, metal crafts. Nice visit.
