Overview

We start the tour driving towards to the district of Cayma, one of Arequipa’s traditional districts, taking as a route the new bride of “Chilina” that allow as to enjoy a view of our city and its terraces with the Chili River. In Cayma we will visit the Main Plaza and its Church, where the Dominican monks built a chapel in the year 1544 and today this Chapel is the sanctuary of the Virgin of Candelaria.
Finishing with this visit we will drive to the area of Añashuayco; place where the famous volcanic stone “Sillar” is extracted (Sillar is the white volcanic stone that is used in the construction of colonial buildings in the city of Arequipa).
In the area of Añashuayco, your guide will give you information about the origin and geological formations of the quarries and we will have the opportunity to observe the hard work that this job takes.

We will drive to Yanahuara; where we will visit the popular market of Antiquilla, that until today keep the colonial building style of the “Old Arequipa” and Yanahuara Main Plaza, having a wonderful view of the city and its volcanoes and exploring some traditional streets. After Yanahuara we keep forward to Arequipa Main Square (Plaza de armas) where you guide will give information about history and details of its infrastructure, and important points about the Cathedral.
