Arequipa

Location: Arequipa, Peru

The second city of Peru

The shanty towns on the outskirts of Peru, 66,000 people live here with sparse amenities.

Traditional costume

The Cathedral which has been extensively repaired after earthquake damage.

Breakfast on the balcony of our hotel overlooking the main square. Plaza de Armas.

Detail of La Compania, known as Peru's Sistine Chapel, no photos are allowed so I took this from a postcode, the pattern is very reminiscent of the work of William Morris.

The Jesuit Church

Detail of the Monastery of Santa Catalina

Part of the Monastery of Santa Catalina, a huge complex, known as a city within a city, where the daughters of the rich spent time as novices complete with servants and all home comforts!

Pete swears that this is his wife!

View of the Chilli River from the Mirador de Carmen

The square at night, view from our hotel.

View of El Misti
