Arequipa

View of Arequipa with the Bolognesi Bridge in the foreground and Misti Volcano in the background. Arequipa is called the White City because of the sillar, a whitish volcanic rock, used in construction. This bridge is named for Coronel Francisco Bolognesi, a hero of the Battle of Arica in the War of the Pacific, in which he led 1500 hundred defenders against the 5300 Chilean forces.

The Grau bridge is named for Miguel Grau Seminario, commander of the iron monitor Huáscar, built in 1862 and a vital force in the War of the Pacific between Bolivia, Chile and Peru.
