Molino de Sabandía - Cultural Tour Arequipa - Peru

This centuries-old mill, powered by a nearby waterfall, is in operation, grinding grains and flours, after being restored in 1973. This historical landmark is worth visiting both for its historical architecture, as well as the natural beauty surrounding it. Alpacas and vicuñas freely wander outside and there are spectacular views of Misti and Chachani volcanoes.
