From the 14th of August, the "fiesta" of Arequipa lasts about one week. The all department of Arequipa celebrates it : everybody is in the street, typically dressed. Drinks turn all over the nights.. You will maybe attend a show of "epileptic dance" !!

A partir du 14 aout, c'est la fete d'Arequipa qui dure environ 1 semaine : tout le departement la celebre ! Les gens sont dans la rue, habilles typiquement : les verres tournent toutes les nuits... Vous verrez peut-etre une exhibition de danse "epileptique" !!
