About Arequipa

The name Arequipa comes from the quechua word “ari-que-pay”, that refers to a legend about the inca Mayta Cápac; in the legend his subjects, impressed by the beauty of the place, asked him to stay and the inca answered: “yes, stay” (ari-que-pay).In the inca period the incas left the Arequipa territory in search of new places to conquer. The official foundation of the city took place in 1540, by the Spanish who arrived there to take advantage of the mines of the area in the colonial period.The city prospered quickly due to its advisable location in the mining transit path, becoming the most important commercial city, and standing out for its loyalty to the Spanish crown.During the republic, Arequipa was the place where concentrated most of the uprisings and social and political conflicts, what (later on time) would deserve its title of “Hero city of the free people of Arequipa”. Nowadays the city of Arequipa is one of the metropolis of higher economic, cultural and touristic importance inside the country.

About Lima

Lima, also known as "The City of the Kings" or "Lima, la gris", is the capital of Peru. Founded in 1535 by the Spanish Francisco Pizarro, currently has more than 8.5 million inhabitants, thus being the most populous city in Peru. This territory was occupied by the ancient Maranga culture and Lima culture, before both were conquered by the Wari culture. It is for this reason that until now you can find huacas in different parts of the city of Lima. During the viceroyalty, the city became very important until it became the center of political and economic power. Its excellent location, since it was close to a sea, made it part of a large commercial network that included not only America, but also Europe and East Asia. When the independence of Peru occured in 1821, Lima adopted its new role as capital of the Republic of Peru. In fact, the most important building of democracy, the Government Palace, is located in this city. Finally, in 1930s, the migratory waves from the interior of the country to Lima begin, thus initiating urban expansion.
