Overview

Discover the origin of Arequipa’s brilliant white architecture on an excursion to the Canteras de Sillar, or Sillar Quarries, where you’ll see local masons cutting stone from pale, volcanic cliffs. Challenging access roads mean the Canteras de Sillar would be difficult to reach on an independent trip, and visiting with a guide is a fascinating way to get the background on Arequipa’s long tradition of stone work.
  • See active quarries that give Arequipa its nickname
  • Learn about Peru's white city with commentary from your guide
  • Visit outlying areas that are difficult to reach on your own
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at your Arequipa hotel
