The old town of Arequipa was made a UNSCO World Heritage Site back in 2000, due to the importance of the well conserved Colonial Spanish architecture. The majority of this area has been constructed from local volcanic stone that is white and glistens in the sunlight. The Plaza de Armas has a heightened grandeur with vaulted colonnades on three sides and an impressive Cathedral, even by European standards.
Putting the robotics aside, sections of the museum where interesting with a large array of Inca artefacts, and the finale being a frozen Mummy, the Ice Princess “Juanita” , a young Inca girl over 500 years old still with skin and hair intact, she was less that half our size.
After recovering from our cake comas it was the morning and time for the next excursion, up over the mountains to Colca Canyon for an outdoor adventure.
