  • There are only animals and a mill, none of the other world is perhaps more ideal if walks with children in any case better take advantage of the time to other activities.

  • I loved the mill because you can see animals that live there, the architecture and beautiful gardens.

  • There is only one mill, pretty and already, but nothing more! The fall of water, animals, is a joke! Nobody you pela not you says nothing of the mill, although 10 Suns not is nothing, not deserves the penalty pay them. Do not lose time.

  • 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.
