Overview
This is a tour full of history in Arequipa and legends that I will tell you as we induce ourselves into the small streets, squares, wrought iron windows and traditional mansions carved in white volcanic stone (sillar). We will stop briefly to take strength in a local coffee shop with an Peruvian organic coffee espresso and Andean tasting chocolates to go to Quinta Salas or "Castillo del Diablo" through its narrow streets until we reach the edge of the Chili River to meet the Barrio del Solar and the Tambo Matadero. Both places were built in the seventeenth century entirely of white ashlar, the first to house the people and the second to sacrifice the sacrifice of animals. Finally at 5:30 p.m., privileged time to take photos (golden hour), we will go to the Plaza de Armas appreciating Spanish courtyards and colonial balconies of the city. Here ends our journey through time in old Arequipa.
