Arequipa -Sillar Route
at 8.50 am / 1:50 pm Pick up from your hotel. We will start visiting a viewpoint of the Chilina Valley from where we will see our 3 main mountains.
Then we will go to the volcanic stone quarries, transporting us to the origins and the way in which the historical center of the city of Arequipa was built.
We will visit the quarries in current exploitation and we will observe live the ancestral process of extraction of large blocks and carving of the ashlars made by the stonemasons with simple tools such as the barreta, the camber and the chisel. We will be surprised to see how hard-working masters carve the façade of the church of the Society of Jesus on a cliff, demonstrating singular skill and dexterity.
We will visit the enigmatic Culebrillas ravine, an imposing virgin quarry in a narrow path formed by the erosion of water and wind over time. In addition to experiencing sensations of majesty and mystery, we can find petroglyphs.
We will return to the city of Arequipa.
We recommend using a small, comfortable backpack.
