Description

Discover Arequipa, the beautiful white city of Peru. Observe the amazing architecture and buildings with most of it made of a white volcanic stone called Sillar. After the earthquake in Arequipa in 1687 there was a massive use of the construction system with Sillar. When it was perfected, the beautiful colonial architecture of Arequipeña resulted. Appreciate the cutters of this stone in their daily tasks, as well as some samples of carvings. See where the masons take Ignimbrite and then patiently develop the Sillar. They will explain to you in detail the preparation and you will learn the story behind the Sillar. Transfer from your hotel in Arequipa at 08:00 AM and continue to the Culebrillas quarries (3km from the center of Arequipa), which are mainly located in the district of Cerro Colorado and Yura. Return to the city of Arequipa around 12:00 PM and transfer back to your hotel in Arequipa.
