I decided to start my explorations of Arequipa early in the morning after being on a bus all night. The main visitors attraction here is a 15th century monastry that occupies an entire city block. A wealthy widow chose her nuns from the richest Spanish families and the nuns ¨lived it up¨. This place has style and it is massive. The nuns even had servants!!
