They will pick us up from our lodging at 9:00 am to move us to the "Culebrillas Quarries" located 3 km away. from the center of Arequipa in the district of Cerro Colorado and Yura.
After the earthquake in Arequipa in 1687 there was a massive use of the construction system with Sillar, and when it was perfected, the beautiful colonial architecture of Arequipeña resulted.
The quarries of Sillar come from the eruptions of the "Chachani" volcano and on the way we can see the cutters of this stone in their daily tasks, as well as some samples of carvings (45 minutes of travel).
Then we will undertake our return to the city of Arequipa
