Itinerary


Day 1
TOUR TO THE SILLAR ROUTE - AREQUIPA.
  • 8:00 am to 8:30 am // 2:00 pm to 2:30 pm - Pick up from the hotels located in downtown Arequipa.
  • 8:30 am // 2:30 pm - We begin our journey to the "Ruta del Sillar" which is a tourist route with a lot of history and living culture, where you can visit quarries and areas where the ashlar originated.
  • The first point where we will stop will be the Cantera de Añashuayco; to which we will arrive in 45 minutes approx. Currently it is in operation, the stonemasons perform their work from very early; in the place we will be able to appreciate an immense canyon with farallones (walls of ignimbrita) that have several meters of height, formed by the extraction for the formation of the Ashlars. At this point we will tell you the history of sillar, the elaboration and the use that has been given to you since always. In this quarry you can see a Mega-carving of the Church of the Society of Jesus made by the stonemasons themselves. We can also visit some of them so that they can explain to us how their daily work is and they can make us experience cutting one of their stone blocks ourselves.
  • Then we will move to the Quebrada de Culebrillas, which is 30 minutes away from Añashuayco. Arriving at this point we will make a walk of approximately 20 minutes inside the small canyon that was formed by the passage of the water and that has walls of 15 to 20 meters. While we enter the walls of the cannon they are increasing in height.
  • At the end of the walk we can see petroglyphs made by the Wari culture more than a thousand years ago.
  • Before returning to the city we will observe the Apachetas which are stone formations placed one on top of the other that are a symbol of gratitude towards nature and also attraction of good luck which cause a mystical sensation.
