½DAY SILLAR ROUTE AÑASHUAYCO & CULEBRILLAS

DESCRIPTION OF ITINERARY:
AM: SILLAR ROUTE (Añashuayco Sillar Stone):
A driver & guide will pick you up from the hotel to take you to the Añashuayco quarry, stopping at the main square of Cayma district, from where you can see the Misti volcano. Arrival to Añashuayco quarry; a trip of 45 minutes approx. It is currently in operation, the stonecutters carry out their work very early; in the place we will be able to appreciate an immense cannon with cliffs (walls of ignimbrita) that are several meters high formed by the extraction for the elaboration of the Sillares. At this point we will tell you the history of the ashlar, the elaboration and the use that has always been given to it. In this quarry you can see a mega-carved church, of the Society of Jesus made by the stonecutters themselves. We can also visit some of them so they can explain to us what their daily work and make us experiment by cutting one of their stone blocks ourselves. Then we continue to the ravine of Culebrillas, which is 30 minutes away from Añashuayco. Arriving at this point we will make a walk of 20 minutes inside the small canyon that was formed by the passage of water, which has walls of 15 to 20 meters, while we enter it the walls of the canyon, it is increasing in height. At the end of the walk we can observe petroglyphs made by the Wari culture over a thousand years ago. Before returning to the city we will observe the Apachetas, that are pilles of stones placed one on top of other that are a symbol of gratitude towards nature and also attraction of good luck which cause a mystical sensation. Return to hotel.
