Arequipa Peru Art
If you are not sure what to do in Arequipa, I have compiled a list of my favorite activities and some of the most popular activities recommended by other tourists I met during my four-month stay in Isquipsa. I have heard from many tourists who came to my hostel that river rafting is a great activity in the region.
Arequipa tours are one of the best ways to explore the area and discover the deepest gorges in the world. Colca Canyon is the largest canyon in Peru and the second largest in South America and famous for condor sightings.
In addition to the Santuario Museum, the Andinos' Museum of Arqueologia (UCdeSA) also operates the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology of Arequipa, a museum of art, history and archaeology. The Universidad Catolica de Santa Maria also sponsors a number of other museums and museums in the area, such as the Pampas de la Caa Ahuas and the VicuA vicugna. These are two of the most important archaeological sites in Peru, both of which are known for their rich archaeological and cultural heritage. In addition, Are quesadillas also houses many valuable archaeological tourist resources, including the magnificent Andean Condor, which can be observed from the summit of Colca Canyon and from many other places in the region and from other parts of Peru.
The museum has been dedicated to paintings and works of art since the 19th century and beyond, and has a collection of over 1,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings and other works of art. The collection is diverse, but one is the same as the centuries XVI, XVII and XVIII and the other is the same as the 19th century.
If you want to plan your trip to Peru, please read our guide to getting from Lima to Arequipa. If you are not on time and prefer to do a pre-arranged tour, you should book a tailor-made art and culture trip. It is possible and easy to visit each gallery independently, but we recommend booking your tour, comparing the organizers and checking the prices. Even if you choose a tour from one of Peru's most popular tourist destinations, such as Lima, I would still choose Are quesadillas in Isla de los Muertos or even a visit to the National Art Museum in Lima or the Museo de la Ciudad Nacional de Peru.
Arequipa is also a popular backpacker circuit, with the possibility to climb the Misti Volcano and take a break on the way through the Colca Gorge.
The guide will show you the daily customs of the Andean people of this area, and there are also rare figures of people being hunted and carved into the walls. Stay at this place for two hours and then visit a group of alpacas and llamas. Finally, you will find some rock art from the reef and walk through the area with the animals depicted in VicuA (llama) and Pumas (aandu).
An important aspect of the work in the gallery is the preservation of the ancient culture and skills of Peru. Arequipa is preserved to express the cultural heritage of its people and culture, as well as its history and traditions.
The Belmond Andean Explorer connects Cusco, Arequipa and Puno on a three-day, two-day tour. Both are easily accessible by plane, train and highway, but you should be aware that you leave Cisco very early in the morning.
The Apacheta Art Gallery is located in the Convento de la Merced, annexed by the city of Arequipa, Peru's second largest city after Cusco. It is the largest in the city and has an impressive collection of over 1,000 paintings and sculptures. The temple convent at its front is finely carved into blocks, and upstairs there is a room called "Sillar" ("stupid house"), where the works of local artists and artists from all over the world are exhibited. A portico was also built on the site of a former monastery, which today houses an art museum and a small museum.
The gallery was founded by Gabriela Roxana from Cuba, who in some cases participated in solo and group exhibitions around the world, such as "Fraktal Dragon."
The modern city of Arequipa was founded on August 15, 1540 and refounded after the Spanish conquest of the fortifications built in Peru in the 16th century.
Visiting Arequipa, one cannot help but notice that the city itself was built on El Misti, a volcano at the foot of the volcano. El misti is located on the top of Picchu, or "Picchu Top Top," named after the Quechua language of the ancient Inca Empire.
