  • The entrance to the mill is 10 soles or you riding by other 10 Suns, the truth there isn't much to do in this place, is cute but nothing special.

  • We had one day in Arequipa and not giving us the time for excursions further away, if I had more time I would have preferred to go to the Colca Canyon or Misti, but did well.

  • Mill traditional of the city of Arequipa. You can horseback and enjoy the local cuisine. Many dogs there are good vibes to accompany you with their cold noses.
