AREQUIPA - RUTA DEL SILLAR
In the morning - Arrival in the city of Arequipa.
Reception at the airport or bus terminal and transfer to the hotel.
Free morning to acclimatize.
2:00 p.m. We begin our journey towards the Sillar Route, which is a tourist route with a lot of history and living culture, where you can visit quarries and areas where the sillar originated. The first point where we will stop will be the Cantera de Añashuayco; to which we will arrive in 45 minutes approx. It is currently in operation, the stonemasons perform their work from very early; in the place we can 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 experiment 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 do a walk of approximately 20 minutes inside the small canyon that was formed by the passage of water, which has walls of 15 to 20 meters; while we enter it, the walls increase in height.
At the end of the walk we can see petroglyphs made by the Wari culture more than a thousand years ago.
