Yanahuara Church, Arequipa
(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Dating back to 1750, Yanahuara Church represents an old stone church and popular wedding spot. The ornate church was built in a distinct Andean Baroque style that uses South American decor patterns on European-type buildings. Observe the church’s famed stone facade, done in a fine Ashlar masonry style and using sillar, a pearly white volcanic rock popular in Arequipa. The church is meters away from the district's iconic observation deck. While you’re admiring the structure you may see a wedding party heading to or from the church. Add Yanahuara Church and other attractions to your Arequipa trip itinerary using our Arequipa family vacation planner.

  • Interesting the facade and the history of this church. Too bad that it was closed so I could not visit it.

  • The Church of Yanauara is located in the neighborhood. It is not possible to visit it on foot from the Centre but you must take a taxi or private vehicle. More beautiful the façade and the Interior.
