Camana was founded as a Spanish villa in November 1539 by Francisco Pizarro under the name of Villa Hermosa de Camana, with the purpose of establishing a urban center that served as nexus between the City of the Kings (Lima) and Cusco. However, the Villa Hermosa was moved to Arequipa when there were climate complications in the territory of Camana, reason why it’s said that Arequipa was founded. It was in 1839, in the republic period, that Villa de Camana was raised to the category of city.
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.
