Yanahuara, Arequipa

(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Yanahuara boasts a small church from the Spanish colonial era, a public park with many palm trees, and houses built from sillar, a pearly white volcanic rock. For a panoramic view of the city, the mountain ranges, and the volcanic backdrop, go to "El Mirador," a popular observation point. Street vendors set their stalls around the small park every weekend. Taste queso helado (frozen cheese) or picarones (deep fried "donuts" with honey sauce), or visit the restaurant with the view over the mountains. Plan to see Yanahuara and other attractions that appeal to you using our Arequipa family vacation planner.
