The Basics

With its buttresses, vaults, gargoyles, gates, and balconies—all made from distinctive white stone—Sabandía Mill is an interesting and relaxing place to escape the city center crowds. And visitors enjoy some of the best views of the Misti volcano from the grounds of the mill.

Go on your own, or explore Sabandía Mill as part of a guided tour of the Arequipa countryside. Tours typically combine a stop at the mill with a visit to Founder’s Mansion (La Mansión del Fundador) and other cultural gems, and often include convenient round-trip transport.
