Experience South American countryside at its finest at the district of Paucarpata, famous for its preservation of traditional agricultural practices, and home to massive garlic and onion fields. The major attraction in the district is the farming terraces that date back to Pre-Inca times.

Sabandia Mill is a beautiful example of colonial architecture in Arequipa, and preserves the style of the Viceroyalty. Stroll among the wide terraces and take in the perfect view of the Misti, Chachani and Pichu Picchu volcanoes.

Enter The founder's mansion which was the home of Garci Manuel de Carbajal, the man who constructed Arequipa. Restored in 1981 by enthusiasts of Arequipa's heritage, people can still admire its elegant 16th-century architecture, artwork and furniture.

Take in the panoramic view of the countryside at the Via landscape, and appreciate the artistic agriculture of Arequipan farmers evident in their corn, wheat, garlic, onion, barley and carrot plantations. The last part of this sightseeing trip will be a chance to relax in the antique summer resort of Tingo, and a last panoramic view of the lovely city from the Sachaca viewpoint.
