This is because formerly mansions and houses was building with white walls of ashlar, volcanic rock, other reason is because Arequipa is located in the foothills of the mighty volcanos Chachani, Misti and Pichu Pichu which are covered by snow. The city center of Arequipa is one of the members of the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage, with its characteristic mixture of baroque churches and colonial mansions, like the Monastery of Santa Catalina, a Spanish city in miniature with stone streets , beautiful courtyards and squares. The Mario Vargas Llosa Library is close to Monastery of Santa Catalina. ^_^
