Half day City Tour that includes Santa Catalina & Juanita Mummy

She was found at the snow-capped  Ampato Mount in 1995 and was exhibited at the National Geographic Society in Washington D.C. You will then continue your tour to the Main Square, known as one of the most beautiful squares in Peru because it was built of sillar (white volcanic rock) and features carved arches. The square is located next to the impressive Arequipa Cathedral, built in the 17th century and fully rebuilt after several earthquakes.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Comfortable and light clothing is the most convenient choice for traveling on Peru’s coast, while warmer clothes are best for stays in the highlands. Passengers must not wear sleeveless T-shirts, shorts, miniskirts or very tight clothes when visiting temples, religious places or official buildings. Sunblock lotion, sunglasses, a hat or cap and a mosquito repellent can be also very helpful during the trip.

Please keep in mind that check-in hour in most hotels starts at 1:00 pm. Early-arriving guests will be subject to room availability while waiting in the hotel lobby.
