Monasterio de Santa Catalina Arequipa

August 3rd, 2010

From Chala it was the Volcano of Chachani welcoming us to the Arequipa Region in southern Peru where we headed to Arequipa which is the most visited country in Peru after Lima and Cuzco.

Arequipa is the second largest city of the country and I would dedicate several days to your stay here because there are a lot of nice things to see and visit.

The Monasterio de Santa Catalina is definitely one of the things to see in Arequipa and you can visit the monastery with a tour or by yourself.

We had found out about the Monasterio de Santa Catalina by reading in the Lonely Planet where a visit to the convent was suggested.

The best thing about the monastery is that you can actually have a look inside and see how the different rooms and spaces of the monastery were used.

There are many alleys that make the Monasterio de Santa Catalina some sort of Alice in Wonderland looking labyrinth with gorgeous flowers everywhere and benches to sit in the shades and enjoy the view of the Chachani volcano.
