Later on, Yanahura Church had been placed on 1750 and a new district was being grown up. Yanahura is called now: The Beautiful and Romantic Villa of Yanahuara , beacuase the architectural heritage is conserved and it's displayed on the beautiful houses made in "sillar" (white volcanic rock), orchards and gardens.
