and designs. Be aware that some handicraft stores offer very cheap alpaca, often of a lesser quality. * Most typical handicrafts come from the Chivay area. Colorful embroidery called Maquinaza style, representing daily activities or nature scenes. * There are some interesting shops geared towards tourists, including '''Patio del Ekeko''', free WiFi included. The old Jesuit convent, half a block from the Plaza de Armas, is free to enter and has very good shops for fine Alpaca garments and local products.

Arequipa keeps one of the most '''varied''' and flavorful '''cuisine cultures''' in the country. Meals are robust with soups as one of their main dishes. Local food is usually served at lunch time but you can also find it in locals for tourists during dinner time. Spicy food is very popular.

Try '''Rocoto relleno con pastel de papa''', a large stuffed pepper with potato pie. Ask beforehand if it has been made for "tourists" or if it is the original, quite hot, style; if the last one, be careful, it can be extremely hot! Try '''Alpaca steaks'''. This meat, very low in fat, is juicy and very tender. It is presented in the same manner as traditional beef. This city is the best place in Peru to eat '''river shrimps'''. They are presented in several ways, the most popular being '''Chupe de Camarones''', a thick, savory soup featuring many shrimps in it. Beware, the plates here are big. Arequipa is only three hours away from the sea, so many fish restaurants are available. If you have not tried '''Ceviche''' in Peru yet, this is a great opportunity. There are also many other sea delicacies. Local restaurants are called '''Picanterías'''. They are still very popular among locals. Some are within the urban area and some others on the outskirts of the city. There is a neighborhood called Arancota, where you can find many of these restaurants.
