Description

The sillar is the origin of the architecture of the White City and its tourist route is developed in the district of Cerro Colorado. In addition to the natural landscapes of the area, one can observe the process of extraction, carving and mega-carving of ashlar.

After the earthquake that occurred in Arequipa in 1687, the massive use of the construction system with Sillar took place, and when it was perfected it resulted in the beautiful colonial architecture of Arequipa.

The quarries of Sillar come from the eruptions of the volcano Chachani and in this tour we will be able to appreciate the cutters of this stone in their daily tasks, as well as some samples of carvings (45 minutes of tour).
