  • 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!

  • There is a very interesting Museum inside the Cathedral of Arequipa. To be able to visit there a tour in which each space of the Cathedral tour. Documents, costumes, jewelry and more are exhibited as it progresses. Already the ceiling shows the Bell Tower and from there there is a spectacular view of the plaza of arms as well as the volcanoes. This tour is a must and not to be missed, very good experience.

  • Visit fast but very well! In french! Predict 10 soles per person + 5 soles per person for the guide. The only way to access the roof of the Cathedral.

  • It is not better than the Cathedral of Lima. Costs more and practically one must "pay" your guide to part of general admission. What we liked was the sector of jewelry where we saw beautiful diamonds and gemstones incrustradas in ornaments that were used in the religious colony.
