  • The ticket only needs to be s/.10, to have the Director to be able to visit, the whole need to follow the guide to walk together, the end need to pay a fee, especially to the view of the top, can go to the whole Arequipa city and El Misti, very recommended!

  • I highly recommend the Tour. Fantastic historical artifacts. They even take you to the roof where you can see the entire city laid out.
