The Arequipa Cathedral is located on the Plaza de Armas in central Arequipa. The building is considered one of the first 17th Century religious monuments of Arequipa. Like many of the buildings in Arequipa it is made of the distinctive white volcanic stone called sillar.
Arequipa is prone to earthquakes so much of the original cathdral has been re-built. The last major earthquake in 2001 caused serious damage to the cathdral's towers.
The cathedral can be visited during Monday to Saturday 7:30 - 11:30 am or 4:30 - 7:30 pm or Sundays 7:00 am - 1:30pm or 5:00 - 7:00 pm
Address: Plaza de Armas, Arequipa
