The eclectic little suburb of Yanahuara, northwest of the city, is perfect for lunch or a late afternoon stroll. The neighborhood is above Arequipa and has amazing views over the city at the lookout constructed of sillar stone arches. On a clear day views of volcanos El Misti, Chachani, and Picchu can be had. Stop in at the 1783, mestizo-style Iglesia Yanahuara. The interior has wrought-iron chandeliers and gilt sanctuaries surrounding the nave. Ask to see the glass coffin that holds a statue of Christ used in parades on holy days. To reach Yanahuara, head across the Avenida Grau bridge, then continue on Avenida Ejército to Avenida Lima, and from here, it's five blocks to the Plaza. It's a 15-minute walk or an eight-minute cab ride from the city center.
