Fabulous cathedral in beautiful small cute square. Stunningly beautiful and we were lucky enough to be in hotel with arched terrace across the road. We had a terrace that looked over to the basilica from our bedroom. The wooden sculpture of the Winged Devil I found really interesting.

To be honest, we didn't get inside the Cathedral, the line was too big, and we've seen quite a few cathedrals. However, from the outside it's quite impressive. The mix with the Plaza de Armas gives an awesome perspective. The architectonic style is also excellent.

This cathedral is very pretty and the tour was very informative. I’m glad we decided to visit. The guide was required, but we found she did a great job. We would have missed so much interesting history and information without her.

I bought a semi-private tour of the cathedral. The guide was was very informative and the tour included viewing the interior of the church, their art collection on two floors, and the roof and bell towers of the cathedral. It is a beautiful church and definitely worth a visit! Also, tours are offered in English.

As I wrote about another place, here you have a church where you can have loads of information about colonial art in Arequipa, they have good and friendly guides, do not miss this place.

I definitely recommend visiting the church on your visit here. It takes a about an hour and requires a tour guide, but mine was very good. You also get to visit the bell tower which provides a nice view of the plaza.
