Colonial Large Houses in Arequipa

 

Arequipa conserves one of the best architectural treasures in the colonial time of Peru, expressed maybe in its best way in the temples and religious convents and also in its beautiful elegant largehouses. The features and architecture of this city were due to five factors: the isolation of the communication roads, the telluric movements (earthquakes), the ashlar, the wooden absence due to be located in a deserter area and their people's unbroken spirit. The nickname of the city "Ciudad Blanca" (White City) was given because of the whiteness of their houses and buildings made in white ashlar, contrasting with the bright blue sky.
