Specialty Museum Museum
Exuding genteel European history, Casa Museo Villalobos houses a large collection of antiques from across "The Continent," situated within a century-old late colonial house. Enthusiastic and knowledgable guides accompany visitors through the history of the building and the antiques themselves--including how the original owner came to acquire these prized gems. Pay special attention to the house's intricately carved street entrance. The museum encourages a hands-on experience with the items displayed, a privilege not found in many museums. Tour guides are available in English. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Arequipa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Casa Museo Villalobos and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This museum is quite picturesque, is located very close to the plaza de armas, the architecture inside is old and you can see pretty art, the entry is not very expensive if you're domestic tourist.

  • Currently it houses a Bank and an art gallery, has beautiful courtyard and a frontispiece in sillar stone considered by many the most beautiful of Arequipa. Free

  • A prematurely with the best tour guide anyone! October 21, 2012, as we walked toward the main square of Arequipa, a person greeted us and spontaneously invited us to walk through a beautiful door. Our first impression was that we were visiting a special Museum. Over time we realized that we were in the House of our "guide" the language barrier not allowed us to better know the person who had welcomed us so well and we were in the sun drenched Street asking us if we had not dreamed. Walter, restaurateur known from the square revealed the identity of our host: Dr. José Villalobos Ampuero, said the doctor to the poor and former Mayor of Arequipa. We had some very good moments in the beautiful city of Arequipa, but that day, our last, has been the most intense. We are pleased to learn that this House has become a Museum and wish long life to the doctor José Villalobos Ampuero. Anne & Jean Michel

Where to stay in Arequipa

Most accommodations in Arequipa cluster on the east side of the Chili River. The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
