Arequipa is dotted with the "Casona's" or mansions. Inside high walls and arched entrance ways open up to courtyards with rooms off them.

The Casona de Santa Catalina is located in front of the Santa Catalina Monastery and is now home to the gift shop, cafe, money changing service and information centre.

The Casona was built in the 18th Century in the Arequipan volcanic stone called Sillar.
