Sabandía Mill (Molino de Sabandía)

Located four miles southeast of Arequipa is the Sabandía Mill, built in 1785 as the first mill of its kind in the area. Although the structure fell into a dilapidated state, it was restored in 1973 by architect Luis Felipe Calle, who was so proud of his work that he purchased the building and opened it to visitors.

The site provides an excellent example of sillar stone architecture, which is typical of Arequipa, and allows visitors to view stone grinding wheel techniques used to process wheat. Most travelers come here to picnic in a relaxing atmosphere among the pristine gardens and Paucarpata countryside, although the site also features a pool, multiple hiking trails, horseback riding opportunities and a petting zoo. Don't miss the clear views of El Misti.
