  • About 40 min were delayed in opening and then we knew that it was because they were a private photo shoot. When they finally opened it was not friendly, there are private areas inside the mill where ask for leave in bad ways. I know that it is historical, but I would not recommend it.

  • Sabandía district, is situated in a beautiful place surrounded by green areas. Shown as working mill, several objects of the era are preserved and you can visit a small Zoo at the end of the tour.

  • 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.
