Arequipa : Michelin's recommendations
Arequipa, birthplace of Mario Vargas Llosa, is more than worthy of a visit. A listed UNESCO site, the town is strewn with Baroque and crossbred architectural edifices, such as the immense Santa Catalina Convent, which should not be missed, particularly as it is lively and busy throughout the day. The surrounding countryside is also superb (the surrounding volcanoes are paradise for sports enthusiasts).
