-This volcano is famous in Arequipa and in Peru for being considered one of the protectors of the city Arequipa and because the "Sillar" is extracted, a volcanic stone of white color that is used for the construction of churches and colonial houses. It is one of the reasons why Arequipa is called "The White City". Climbing this volcano is like doing a mountain hike, it is not difficult or technical, but it is important to have a good acclimatization before climbing.
