Arequipa - view the stunning buildings of the main square
The main square in Arequipa is stunning with its white volcanic rock buildings. It is completely transformed at night, by all the street lights and floodlights. Two of the most stunning buildings located on the square is the magnificent neo renaissance cathedral, which was completed in 1850 and the town hall, which was built around the same time. Both of these are reconstructions of earlier buildings that had been destroyed by earthquakes, and are magnificent both outside and inside.
