Sachaca Tourist Viewpoint: A perfect place to appreciate the city, the countryside and the volcanoes

From the top you can see the extensive Arequipa countryside, the old and modern houses of the city. This 19-meter-high tower was built at the top of the hill that housed the old Sachaca cemetery, remodeled in 1996. The viewpoint has five floors. From its terrace you can see the Misti, Chachani and Pichu Pichu volcanoes. On the third floor is the statue of a White Christ the Redeemer made of marble, 2.5 meters high, which was sent from France in 1969.


This viewpoint is located 4 km from the city.


If you want to see a viewpoint with little influx of people, Correo shows you the tour of the Sachaca Tourist Viewpoint, located five minutes from the Plaza de Armas of Arequipa. The attraction was built in 1988, in the upper part of the Traditional Town of Sachaca. According to the review, the space was formerly a cemetery. The building is 19 meters high and occupies an area of ​​29 square meters.


The construction of the tower is made of noble material, but it was veneered with pieces of ashlar. Due to its age, the viewpoint was remodeled twice, the first in 1996 and 2022.


What can we find? At the bottom you can find a large space to rest and observe part of the district's countryside. There are portals veneered with ashlar.


But the highlight is the tower, which has five floors. On the third level you can see the image of the White Christ the Redeemer that measures 2 and a half meters high and is built on a marble base, which was sent in 1969 from France, for the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts and later was requested to be donated to the commune.
