Overview
Route of the Sillar, Viewpoints of the Valley and Volcanoes We enter in the middle of huge volcanic stone farellones 30 meters high carved "to combo and chisel", colonial facades and carvings. Here we will have an illustrious moment with the master stonecutters, known as "cutters". They will reveal their live work techniques so that later we can do it with our own hands. We will see giant block falls and the wonderful experience of watching small blocks of ashlar made using ancestral instruments used from generation to generation. Heading to the Mirador de Carmen Alto !!! We will visit the traditional and unmissable viewpoints of Arequipa, Mirador de Carmen Alto to appreciate the Chilina Valley and our 3 volcanoes, Chachani, Misti and Pichupichu. The second viewpoint is in Yanahuara. Here we will eat rich traditional desserts and buy unique handmade souvenirs in the square.

This is one of the many sites where you can get an idea of volcanic explosions and lava deposits that was used to built the city of Arequipa. There are any carvings on the lava, as there are in the actual city around the old buildings including the cathedral.
