  • Starting with its organ of colossal size, the reliquaries and other riches of the time virreynal, worthy to admire. To really be amazed. Admission costs 20 soles and service guide, which are excellent to explaining. Not allowed to take photos of some areas. It is a must and is very accessible. You can climb to the highest point where the campaigns are.

  • One of the most spectacular cathedrals I have ever met. Well worth getting to know arequipa and all its churches.

  • We were touring the Museum with a guide with a few Italians. Ride was super interesting which we showed the more ostentatious arequipeñas families could bring Italy, Spain among paintings, sculptures, ornaments and priceless pieces.

  • Maybe I'm from Italy and a little spoiled but this Cathedral is not the best. Some interesting pieces but the tour is a tiny bit of a ripoff and they are really trying to milk every little bit of it
  • The best of Arequipa is here. Beautiful harmony: trees, peoples, pigeons, constructions, everything.
  • what a place! a beautiful monument! and Arequipa city was one of our nicest suprises there, for it's nice atmosphere, location, views, architectural monuments. A must see!
  • Really pretty cathedral - especially the exterior.
  • Beautiful cathedral and amazing tour. Definitely worth the S10 entry.
