Yanahuara, Arequipa

(4.3/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • One of the most beautiful viewpoints of Arequipa. It can be walked, which is located 25 minutes from the historic centre. Another option is to take a tour that runs through the countryside and which includes a stop at this viewpoint.
