Yanahuara is well known for its buildings built from sillar, a pearly white volcanic rock. At least 1 4 of the district's area is taken by "Umacollo", where various middle-class residential houses of the city are located. Yanahuara includes the popular avenue strip known as the "Avenida Ejército", where many banks and modern offices are also located.

To the ordinary religious vows they added that of caring for the sick even at the risk of their own lives. * Cañete (San Vicente de Cañete): Asia District * Arequipa: Yanahuara District Av.
