About Arequipa and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Arequipa.
Arequipa is a large modern city in southern Peru, and it is also a major administrative center and the seat of the constitutional court. The city center is historically important; it has preserved unique colonial buildings of white stone and is included in the UNESCO list. Arequipa has many neo-Gothic and baroque architectural structures and gastronomy characterized by a variety of local cuisine.
The main attractions of the city, which attract tourists from different countries, are ancient monasteries and elegant churches, for example, Convento de Santa Catalina convent, the Cathedral, the Jesuit church of La Campania, the churches of San Francisco and Santo Domingo. Among the secular buildings, the former mint of the Casa de la Moneda and the Casa Moral mansion, the cozy central Plaza de Armas, in the characteristic colonial style, is of interest to visitors.
More than two hundred mansions are part of the architectural heritage of humanity, and the picturesque Puente Bolognese and Puente Fierro bridges are a separate point of interest. You can get acquainted with the life of Arequipa’s wealthy colonizers at the Mansion del Fondador estate museum. There are unique natural objects in the vicinity of Arequipa – Colca Canyon, which is considered the deepest in the world. As well as the Inca capital, Cuzco, the unique “white city” of Arequipa, and lost in the jungle, Machu Picchu.
In southern Peru, the main air transport hub is Rodríguez Ballón International Airport (AQP, SPQU), which is excellent for private charter flights.
