In the15th century, the region, then occupied by Aymara Indians, was conquered by the Inca and served as an important supplier of agrarian products to the Inca Empire. The modern city of Arequipa was founded on august 15th by Garci Manuel de Carbajal, an emissary of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro.
