  • It is a church located in the center of the city that has the Baroque art as the others. Your visit is not necessary

  • Apart from the jungle and its wonderful landscapes, waterfalls, animals, you must know the Church of la Merced which is very nice Church, I love since one enters as feel that inside there was an incredible history since its inception, can not leave without mercy to see visited the Church.

  • It is certainly one of the most interesting and impressive buildings of the historic centre of Arequipa. These allow to appreciate the Catholic architecture of the colonial period in the Peru.
