We will begin our tour at 7:45 am, picking you up from your hotels, then we will tour the volcanic stone quarries, transporting us to the origins and the way in which the historic center of the city of Arequipa was built.

We will visit the enigmatic Culebrillas ravine, an imposing virgin quarry on a narrow path formed by the erosion of water and wind over time. In addition to experiencing sensations of majesty and mystery, we will be able to find petroglyphs. We will also visit quarries in current exploitation and we will observe live the ancestral process of extracting larger blocks and carving the ashlar that the stonemasons carry out with simple tools such as the bar, the skipping rope and the chisel. We will be surprised to see how industrious masters carve the front of the Compañía de Jesús church on a cliff, demonstrating singular ability and skill, then we will finish the tour at 2pm
